Dr. John McLaughlin was one of the first three physicians in Webster County. Known state wide as a highly skilled physician and diagnostician, he built his home here in 1894. The small building in front was used as his office. The house at one time was home to Eli “Rimfire” Hamrick, whose statue at the State Capitol honors him as he “typical
mountaineer.” Currently, this building is being renovated as the home of the Webster County Historical Society Museum.
