Acheson-Caldwell House and Cheek-Evans House were the first two of three new women's residence halls constructed in 1962 to house the students being moved from the old Women's Department campus to the Centre College campus. The third, Yerkes House, would be completed in 1963.

Cheek-Evans House was named for the Cheek family, specifically Ruby Moss Cheek '29 and her sister-in-law Dr. Mary Ashby Cheek '09, and the Evans family, including James H. Evans '43, a native of Louisville and chair of the Centre Board of Trustees from 1979 to 1986.
