193 W. Washington St. “Booker T. Washington House”

The historic three bedroom “Booker T. Washington House” at 193 West Washington St. in Athens is available for rent from May 8, 2023 – May 3, 2024. A complete renovation of this home was completed in 2013, intended to preserve the history of the original staircase and hallway. Booker T. Washington was married in this house in 1886, and it was the home of Athens’ first African American physician. This 3 bedroom one and a half bath house has a nice size living room, a back room that makes a great laundry / office / 4th bedroom, covered front and back decks, and included parking for all tenants and a guest (4 spaces).

Just minutes walk to uptown Athens and the Ohio University campus – West Washington St. runs into Court St. (the main downtown area close to campus). Rent is $525 per person/ $1575 per month for the 3 person house, and a refundable security deposit of one month’s rent is due at lease signing. Although the back end of this property was once a stable, now there are strictly no pets permitted 🙂  Call 740 707-9098
