The building once served as the residence for American University's chancellors (later called presidents). The building was completed in 1925 and is a reproduction of the Macey House, built in 1854 on Nantucket Island. The building stands in what was the front yard of the General Murdock Home, The Old Farmhouse, which originally stood on this property.
