Inscription.  Dr. and Mrs. Henry Kremers commissioned local builder George Dalman to design and construct this house for them. Completed in 1889, the modified Elizabethan style dwelling was built primarily of native stone and locally manufactured brick. A prominent doctor, Kremers was elected mayor of the city in 1889. After his death in 1914, his wife, Alice Van Zwaluwenberg-Kremers, lived here until 1917, when she sold the house to the City of Holland for use as its first city hospital.
