The Presidentís House of the University of Michigan is the oldest building on the campus.  It is one of the four original houses constructed by Harpin Lum in the summer of 1840. The two-story plan included a central hall with two rooms opening off each side. The identical arrangement was repeated on the second floor. Each room had a fireplace.
