Inscription.

This residence likely dates to the 1860's. James Still, son of Wakarusa Mission (which served the local Shawnee Indians in the 1850's) founder Abraham Still, had his medical office here. In addition to being a doctor, James Still was also a minister, teacher, merchant and lawyer. James' brother Andrew Still was a pioneer in the field of osteopathy. James' son Summerfield Still and his grandson George were also medical doctors in the Eudora area.
