The Edgemoor Century

Our chapter house, Edgemoor, is one of the oldest continuously occupied fraternity houses at Cornell, and across all of Lambda Chi Alpha nationally. Construction was initially completed in 1896, and the Cornell chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha took possession of it in 1921.

In celebration of Edgemoor’s century on the hill, the Omicron Oracle asked alumni to recall life at the house over the various decades. Their stories are linked below.
