Ingersoll Sanitarium

Ingersoll Sanitarium

355 Oxford Avenue. Built in 1870 as the residence of William Waterworth.

In 1900, the doctors in town joined in establishing a Public Hospital in the William Waterworth house, on the westside of Oxford Ave., close to the North Town Line. This was a two storey white brick house. The hospital provided sufficient accommodation at the time. Modern equipment was installed. Babies were born here instead of in the home, which was a new innovation.

  1. WOW! I lived at 355 Oxford Ave from around 1945 until 1960. What a memory to see this home of mine which is now a row of modern day houses. 2013
