T. Henry & Clarace Williams' House
676 Palisades

T. Henry's House

It was in this house that the early Akron group of recovering alcoholics met as part of the Oxford Group meetings hosted by T.Henry and Clarace Williams, both nonalcoholics.  The "Alcoholics Squad," as it became known, eventually split from the Oxford Group in 1939 and met in Dr. Bob's living room for several months before moving to King School at the beginning of 1940.
