Additional Details:
This house was built in 1886 as Ammi W. Wright's personal residence. At the time it was a novelty in home construction, with its hot water heat, electric wiring, and indoor running water. In 1934, the widow of Doctor R.B. Smith purchased the house and converted it to a hospital.
