Historic Dayton House
The Historic Dayton House stands at 1311 Fourth Avenue as a visible representation of Worthington's early days and as a symbol of civic leadership and business success. It is unique both in the time of its grand appearance in a small prairie town in the late 1800s and in its ownership for well over a century. Three families related through business, blood, and marriage—the Daytons, the Smallwoods, and the Cashels—owned and lived in the house over time. Each contributed in unique ways to the community and its surrounds.
