Ripley House aka Lane's Coach House

During a recent visit to my hometown of Worthington, Ohio I photographed this house which I found was on the National Register of Historic Places. I remember when my mother took me to visit the family dentist, Dr. Harold Crow, whose office was on the second floor. I recall that his family lived in the old house at that time.

From the Worthington Historical Society web site:
"The Ripley House is a gable-ended structure built for both home and business with a front entrance facing the main street for the shop. One important feature remaining today is the Adam style mantel that has diminutive fluted columns and a delicate elliptical sunburst medallion. Historically, it is the 1823 birthplace of Roswell S. Ripley, who attended West Point, married and settled in Charleston, South Carolina, and became a Confederate general during the Civil War."
