Inscription.  
English:
In 1905 Woodstock physician and surgeon Dr. William D. Rankin, who had been instrumental in establishing the first Carleton County Hospital three years previously, purchased this house from John Fisher, one of the owners of the Small & Fisher Foundry. Constructed sometime in the decade before 1887, the house was originally heated by steam piped from the nearby woodworking factory where its owner worked.

Dr. Rankin married Jennie Sharp, daughter of orchardist Francis Peabody Sharp, and was thus a brother-in-law of Minnie Bell Sharp and Tappan Adney.

Construite au cours de la décennie avant 1887, la maison était chauffée initialement par de la vapeur provenant de l'usine de menuiserie située tout près où son propriétaire travaillait.
