Description

Dr. Lewis D. Remington, a heart and lung specialist who came to  Monrovia in 1909, built this home for him, his wife, Cassia (Prentiss),  and daughter, Beatrice Dorothea to live in. Formerly he had lived at 146  Primrose Avenue with his first wife, Lida May, who died of lung disease  in 1909.


Early pictures show the home painted white with red shutters. Originally there were cupboards built into the corners of the  dining room, but they have since been removed. There was also a  revolving cupboard as well as a small center island in the kitchen,  neither of which remain.   An unusual feature of the time was glass  brick, which he used in the walls of both bathrooms.
