The house at 236 Harrison was purchased in 2005 following the sale of the Atlantis Co-op on Bogue Street.  Atlantis had been sold in anticipation of the City of East Lansing’s plan to exercise eminent domain for the Cedar Village area development project. 

The new group of members, some of them transplants from Atlantis and other co-op houses, named the house Avalon.
In the Fall of 2012, the house was completely recolonized. The new members decided to rename the house, "House of Apollo," in honor of the Apollo missions.
