This old stone house sits near downtown Alma. It has a long and interesting history. It was built in 1888 by lumber baron Ammi Wright. After his death the Wright family sold the house to become Smith Memorial Hospital in 1934 and then Northwood Institute in 1959. Another interesting fact about Ammi Wright is that he donated the land and money to start Alma College. It is sad to see this historic house sitting forgotten and slowly decaying.
