Significance: Erected in 1889, this building is one of two similar quarters built to house an increased officer staff necessitated by establishment of the Army's gun factory at Watervliet. Located in the housing area developed at the north side of the arsenal in the 19th century, it is a good example of a Queen Anne residence. Among the building's residents were the family of Colonel James Walker Benet, which included the authors Stephen Vincent, William Rose, and Laura Benet.
