Gardner House aka Turner House
"The Gardner House, built in 1896, has many distinctly Queen Anne architectural characteristics. Historically, it was the home of Lyman Gardner, founder of the Worthington Savings Bank. This ten-room home was considered a social center for the day with a ballroom on the third floor."

During 1339-1942, my high school years, at Worthington, Ohio I walked by this house countless times on Granville Road at the NW corner of Oxford and hardly noticed it. There was no stage or auditorium at the high school during those years, so we had to walk up the hill to what is now Kilbourne Middle School. I recall that the Doctor Turton family lived there at that time.
