In 1937, Seventh Congressional District alumni organized the first chapter of the West Georgia College Alumni Association. In 1973, the A&M Class of 1923 undertook the project of refurbishing the Alumni House.

The house now known as the Alumni House was known as the Melson House for six years, the Ingram House for forty years, the Row House for about six months and the Row House for five years. Formerly, the house was known as the Principal’s House from 1914 until 1933 when the A&M became West Georgia College, and the President’s House from 1933 until June 1967.
