2012 PRESERVATION AWARDS: STEWARDSHIP

ROSS CRANE/SAE HOUSE
Athens, Clarke County

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) House in Athens was originally built in 1842 as the home of Colonel Ross Crane. The house was documented in the 1930s by the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The SAE fraternity has been stewards of this house since 1929 and has undertaken several rehabilitations to make necessary upgrades for the building's use as a fraternity house while still maintaining its historic integrity. In 2008 it began an extensive rehabilitation project that included detailed repairs of historic windows, water damaged areas, and character defining architectural features. The Georgia chapter of SAE has shown its commitment to protecting the historic house that is in its care.
