Inscription.  On this site in 1914, Theta Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta built the first Chapter House located on the campus of the University of Alabama. The house was the first structure on what became known as Fraternity Row, later known as "Old Row." That house, built In the Southern Colonial Style, remained the home of Theta Chapter until it burned to the ground in 1964. In 1966, the present Chapter House was completed on this site; it remains the home of the fraternity today.

Theta Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta was established on May 11, 1855, as the second-oldest existing fraternity at the University of Alabama, when John Mason Martin, Theodore G. Pierce, John J. Harris, and Walter C. Roper were initiated.

Sponsored by The Graduate Brothers of Theta Chapter in commemoration of the centennial of the building of the first Chapter House on the campus of the University of Alabama.
