Theodore W. Otis residence, North Pleasant, Prescott, Arizona.

Theodore Weld Otis (b. 1835 - d. 1916) was a Prescott merchant and businessman from the 1860s through the turn of the century. Between 1875 and 1884 he served as the local postmaster. In 1877 Otis contracted with John W. Curtis, a local builder, to design and construct a home. Rendered in the Gothic Revival style, the house has retained most of its distinguishing features. The only known residence of its style to have survived in Prescott, it is also one of the rare examples of bulding construction from the pre-railroad era. Historically the house has been mentioned as the meeting place wherein the First Congregational Church was organized.
