The Brown House was used for a variety of purposes during its existence. At one time, it served as the President's residence. Later it was used as a club for Repertory Theatre patrons. Shortly before its demolition, the building was the site for a coffee shop sponsored by the Student Government Association. The Brown House was torn down on September 7, 2001 to make way for the Emerson Library.
