The original Bennett House, which burned on October 12, 1921, faced east on the old Hillsboro Road; the road ran in 1865 as now, south of the building. The structure consisted of one room downstairs and a small room over it; in the former Generals Johnston and Sherman held their conferences and signed the terms of their agreements.

On the south side of the road stood the stable, and nearer the road was a well, still to be seen. Under the large white-oak tree near the well the Generals hitched their horses, and their escorts waited during the conferences.
