This building is first shown as a villa on a map of 1834. It was sold in 1839 and apparently converted into Cheltenham's first General Hospital and Dispensary. In 1849 the hospital was closed when a new one opened on Sandford Road. The building was also used as a hospital for officers invalided from the Crimean War between 1853-6. Following this the wards are said to have been used as dormitories for female student teachers.
