Spell House

11. The Spell House

Built: c. 1911
Location: 1200 Riverside Drive, Titusville

The spell House is one of Titusville's finest historic residences and an excellent example of the Queen Anne style. It is located in Sarah Gleason's addition to Titusville, which was platted in 1911. Mrs. Will Davis Spell purchased the lot from Gleason in 1911 for $550, and the house was apparently built shortly thereafter. Mrs. Spell's husband, Dr. James C. Spell, was the first licensed pharmacist in Titusville. He built the Spell Building in "old downtown," and operated the Banner Drug Store out of the corner storeroom. Spell was also Vice President of the Bank of Titusville.

The house was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
