This Colonial Revival-style house at 2122 Kanawha Avenue was built in 1922 for Mr. and Mrs. Roger Atkinson Young. It was designed by Charleston architect L.T. Bengston who designed many other residences and public buildings in West Virginia. In 1951, the home was sold to Morris Harvey College and has been occupied by the presidents of Morris Harvey and University of Charleston since then. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
