The sisters of Alpha Sigma Alpha have added a little piece of history to their Kettering heritage.
The sisters of Alpha Sigma Alpha have added a little piece of history to their Kettering heritage. The sorority members have purchased a 1920s, English Tudor mansion in the Avon Street Historic District in Flint. The home is near Flint's Cultural Center.
The six-bedroom, multi-story house features a wood-paneled library, a screened-in porch, large living room and dining room and classic architectural reminders of a bygone era. ASA alumni and the families of sorority members have been working on refurbishing the mansion and decorating it in the sorority colors of ruby and pearl white.
ASA was founded at Kettering/GMI in 1976. The current chapter is this year's recipient of the Dean's Cup Award, Chapter Excellence Award, Highest Grade Point Average and other honors. There are 16 women living in the house this term.
The home was originally built by Carl and Bertha Spaeth. Mr. Spaeth was the executive vice president of the First National Bank and the Genesee County Bank.
