I saw this beautiful old house in Battle Creek. The historical marker in front of it reads:
Three generations of doctors made this structure their home. The attractive Victorian house was built by Dr. Arthur H. Kimball in 1886. Kimball, a city health official, came to this area in 1883. His son, Arthur S. Kimball, became Battle Creek’s first pediatrician, founded the local chapter of the American Red Cross and established clinics for the poor. Arthur S. Kimball, Jr., gained national recognition for his work in the treatment of tuberculosis. In 1966, heirs of the Kimball family donated the property to the Junior League for use as a museum.
I always seem to find these beautiful old buildings at the wrong time of year. I wish it was green and the flowers in full bloom. I like to explore no matter what time of year it is, I guess I will have to go back to Battle Creek sometime in the spring and see what else I can find while I am there.
