This brick building, located at 120 West Third St., is the late nineteenth century office and dispensary of Dr. William Davies Hutchings. This building contains most of the original equipment from Dr. Hutchings’ practice as well as some Hutchings’ family furnishings.
Built between 1838-1848, this Greek Revival building, has a triangular front pediment, cornice board, simple moldings and a cut stone foundation. Before Dr. Hutchings acquired the building it had been the law office of Michael G. Bright, an attorney and later Judge John Cravens.
The building located directly east of Hutchings Office is a small shotgun structure that was moved to this location. The structure sits on the site of what was the Hutchings family home. It is now a museum, where Historic Madison, Inc. exhibits the Hutchings Family Collection.
Both of these sights are open to the public Friday- Monday 1-4:30 May- October, owned and operated by Historic Madison, Inc.
