The building, originally named "Athol," was constructed in 1880 as a residence for Charles J. Baker and designed by Baltimore architect T. Buckler Ghequier.[1]

It was purchased in 1900 by Dr Alfred Gundry as a private sanitarium for the "care of nervous disorders of women that required treatment and rest away from home." It continued in existence as a private sanitarium until 1997. It was purchased by the city in 2006 for historic preservation, but it burned down on September 27, 2021, prior to any improvements.[2][3][4]
