Dr. Jim Middleton is expanding the physical therapy portion of his clinic and he is doing it by renovating the McCandless House, also known as the Francis Asbury Smith House, 205 Washington Street in Munfordville. A preliminary plan was to build a 2,500 square foot building in the vacant lot left when the old Methodist Church was demolished. But Dr. Middleton had other ideas. "I couldn't imagine looking at a pre- fab building and right next to :it was the McCandless House falling down," Dr. Middleton commented. ,'We need to save our old house,', he added. Sky Marrese, Practice Administrator for the Family Medical Center pointed out in a presentation to the Horse Cave Rotary Club the need for additional physical therapy space. This service is having about 3,500 patient visits per year in a 600 square foot treatment area. The service was double booking ap- pointments and was not able to take all appointments during peak. times. The need was recognized by Marrese and Dr. Middleton. "Our biggest problem is'getting folks moving," Dr. Middleton pointed out. "We need a fitness center and get them back active," he added. So, the revised plan was to restore and use the McCandless House for physical therapy and a fitness center. There is over 5,000 square feet of space, about 3,000 square feet of gym space in the restoration of the McCand- less House, according to Administrator Marrese's presentation. "The McCandless House is super neat. It would be a crime to let some- thing like that go," Dr. Middleton said. The idea is to create a modem physb See McCANDLESS HOUSE, A5 DR.
