Stephen Vincent Benet, known for his poetry and short stories, began his writing career in this two-story Federal-style house after moving here in 1911. The house now serves as the President's home for Augusta College.

Augusta State University, which owns the Benet house, has applied for a 2004 Save America's Treasures grant to repair the roof and flashing and the damage caused by water infiltration to the interior.
