SZ0890 : Bournemouth: Hahnemann House

taken 8 years ago, near to Westbourne, Bournemouth, Great Britain

Bournemouth: Hahnemann House
Bournemouth: Hahnemann House
A Victorian building standing on a plot in the middle of Hahnemann Road, which skirts round it like a large roundabout. Its postal address does not contain a number, just the street name – it would be difficult to decide between odd and even since it is on neither side!

Hahnemann House was originally a convalescent home, but is currently a branch of Dorset NHS Trust which provides services for those with mental health issues.

I can find no trace of the derivation of the name, but I suspect it has something to do with Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), who created homeopathy (or homśopathy as it would then have been written).
