Dr. William Hutchings Office and Dispensary
Previously a law office, the building was converted into a doctor's office and dispensary in the late 19th century. When the doctor died in 1903 his daughters packed away all of his items and left them to be stored in the building until it came into Historic Madison Incorporated's possession in 1969. Thanks to this the museum hosts much of the doctor's original equipment and furnishings. The two upstairs rooms may have been leased for rent by the Hutchings' family and are set up as bedrooms using furniture and artifacts from the family's home.
