In 1799, prominent Charles Town resident Samuel Washington sold the two lots that house this building to James Duke, a freed indentured servant. Eventually, physician Charles Taylor Richardson took ownership of the land and property. Dr. Richardson ran his small medical practice from the home in which his family also resided for the next two decades. By the early 1900s, the house was being used as Charles Town's first hospital, a capacity it served until the late 1940s when a new hospital was built and the house was converted to a retirement home. American Public University System (APUS) purchased the property in 2003 and renovated the building. APUS maintained many of the historical elements found in the building.
