Williams House in Tucson

The Williams house was located at 160 S. Scott Avenue.  This address later became the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
W.W. Williams was a merchant in Tucson.  President Rutherford B. Hayes stayed at the Williams House sometime during his term of office.   (Rutherford B. Hayes did visit Tucson on October 24, 1880--but cannot confirm that this is the exact date he stayed in the Williams house.)
