325 W. Prospect Ave.
Street number prior to 1925: 893 Prospect

A contemporary of 315 W. Prospect Ave. in both era and style, this Italian Villa style home was designed by noted architect William Waters and built in 1872. The original home, built for Ephraim C. Goff and his wife Louise, featured a central observatory and east wing, both lost to remodeling.
In Goff's biography in the 1881 publication History of Northern Wisconsin it states, "His residence and grounds on Prospect street afford one of the finest views obtainable of this city and valley, and are themselves unsurpassed by any in the city." This home was used as a maternity hospital in 1912 and run by Dr. Maude Pratt.
From the 1915 Appleton city directory

This home is located in the West Prospect Avenue Historic District which is listed in the State and National Register of Historic Places.
