  1. I enjoy reading the stories Scott does on our great buildings downtown. Scott, can you find your article on the Red Star Building and freshen it up? Soon to house the Auben Prime Commercial Properties offices.

  2. I have often noticed this house as my men’s mission group works to rehabilitate a house on D’antignac St not far away. I have pondered it’s history and am saddened by its decayed condition. It is probably too late but it would be beautiful restored.

  3. Scott, thank you so much for giving us a view of “what used to be”….you have certainly filled the void on a lot of important Augusta history (as well as the article on the Hammon house in North Augusta). It would be wonderful if the Denning Home could be restored. Thank you again for this article and all the others you provide us with. Thanks so much of Augusta Press…without this great news outlet we, in Augusta, would still be in the dark about what is happening, as well as what has happened in the past which has been swept under the rug – so to speak.
