Built circa 1963, the Graham Cracker is a group of seven sorority buildings constructed on the block bounded by Knox Road, Princeton Avenue, College Avenue, and Yale Avenue with a common landscaped courtyard and parking in the center. These two-and-a-half story buildings, designed in the Colonial Revival Architectural style, are clad in brick and feature varying roof types, gable and hipped dormers and entry porticoes. Today, these sororities are among the more than 30 university-related buildings in the Old Town neighborhood that serve as student housing.
