Delta Kappa Epsilon (D.K.E.), Beta Chapter was the first fraternity founded at the University of North Carolina on April 5, 1851. The early chapter meetings were held in the house of John W. Carr. Due to the Civil War, the chapter was dissolved in 1861. The Chapter was revived on March 19, 1887.

This D.K.E. "frat hall" was built circa 1890. The building somehow escaped the January 8, 1919 fire on Fraternity Row that burned the adjacent buildings.
