In 1907 Dr. Wilson purchased the home located on the southeast corner of Ringling Boulevard and South Orange Avenue from Edgar Ferdon, a local architect. The house was not only the Wilson home, but also Dr. Wilson’s medical office. He and his wife Fannie (the daughter of Sarasota pioneer C.L. Reaves) had two sons who were born in the home.

The Wilson house, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was saved from demolition in 2004 and moved to its present location of 4012 Honore Avenue at Urfer Family Park.
