Regarding Phi Gamma Delta House. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "This campus home of graduate and undergraduate members of Mu Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, this imposing English Tudor revival style house was designed by Law, Law and Potter, Madison's most successful architectural firm in the 1920s and 1930s. The floor plan has three parts, with the 'Alumni Cottage' at the front, the dormitory section in the middle and the stately 'Great Hall' lakeside. This unique concept was developed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who worked on early designs for the house."
