This large Italianate house was built in 1874 for Prof. John Davies, a distinguished professor of Natural History and Chemistry, and his wife Anna. Prof. Davies died in 1900. A major remodeling occurred in 1926 and this is probably when the house was sided in stucco and brick and received its Mediterranean Revival details, evident mostly on the Langdon Street side of the house. After the remodeling a sorority moved into the house.
