Bluffton University’s Houshower House becomes new campus welcome center

BLUFFTON — Bluffton University moved its welcome center to The Houshower House, a cottage with a history on campus, located at the corner of College Avenue and Spring Street, close to the main entrance of campus.

The cottage was built by H.W. Berky, professor of chemistry, in 1946. In 2006, the home was donated to Bluffton by his daughter, Margaret, and son-in-law, Mark Houshower.

“The Houshower House is a unique, warm and friendly place, and because it is a legacy home on campus, it is symbolic of the experience students will have at Bluffton right from their first visit,” Dr. Jane Wood, Bluffton University president, said in a university press release.
