The HA Whitney House was built in 1868, by the founder of the Columbus Canning Company. John's parents purchased it in the mid-1950's from the Albrecht family who were using it as a funeral home. After Mert & Frances Walcott purchased the home Mert designed a professional photographic studio to wrap around the northeastern sides of the house. John & Suzanne purchased it from them and enclosed the entry and added a 30' x 11' northlight studio. The upstairs of the house contains 2-restored executive apartments. In 2018 John and Suzanne, with the help of family, gutted the efficiency apartment on the back of the building, that was added in the late 60's and converted it into the HA Whitney Inn is licensed as a "Tourist Rooming House".
