Over 100 years ago, this home belonged to Molly Teal, one of Huntsville’s most famous madams.  At her death, she donated the home to the city to become a hospital, aka Huntsville Hospital, which was the only public hospital in the area for quite a while.  A modern hospital was eventually built, but it’s kind of funny that once upon a time, the hospital was the location of the town brothel.
