Dr. James K. and Maora Hill Douglas

Dr. James K. Douglas (sometimes spelled Douglass) was a dentist in Sandusky for over fifty years. He was an 1894 graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. Dr. Douglas died unexpectedly on October 4, 1954.

Mrs. Maora Hill Douglas was an early member of the Martha Pitkin Chapter of the D.A.R., and the Art Study Club. Maora's grandfather, Dr. B. L. Hill, was associated with the "water cure" facility in Berlin Heights in the 1850's. Maora Douglas died on December 15, 1958. Dr. and Mrs. Douglas are buried in the West End Cemetery in Berlin Heights, Ohio.

Just wondering - do you have any idea where in Berlin Heights the Crystal Fountain Water Cure was located? I've been trying to place that historic image on a map, without any luck.

I think it was at the old Davis House hotel, but I am not positive of the exact location.
