History

The house at 146 Collingwood was built in the 1930s and purchased to be part of Hedrick in 1964. Before the co-ops were co-ed, the women of Hedrick lived here, while the men were next door. Part of SHC's HUD loan provided money for renovations in 1980. In 1986, during an infamous retreat to Key Largo, Florida, board members decided to split Hedrick into two co-ops, and the 146 and 152 Collingwood were named Key Largo as a reminder. 152 Collingwood later became Miles Co-op, and Key Largo was recently re named Ferency in memory of Zolton Ferency, a popular professor, perennial political candidate, and long-time friend to the co-ops.
