University Demolishing Historic Campus Structure

The University has announced plans to demolish the ca. 1885 Cheney House located on the southeast edge of campus during spring break.  Notable for both its distinctive Eastlake Stick Style architecture and historical associations, it has been a Berkeley City Landmark since 1990 and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. As recently as 2004, the University’s Long Range Development Plan described the house as “a rare survivor of southeast Berkeley’s early private residences” (LRDP 2020: D.1–6).
