Abstract

On January 24, 1848, delirious from chloroform, Horace Wells rushed from his house and office on 120 Chambers St into the street and threw acid on 2 alleged prostitutes. He was arrested and committed to New York's infamous Tombs Prison (currently Manhattan Detention Complex), where he committed suicide. Remodeled and reconstructed, this house, 120 Chambers St, is still standing in Tribeca District.
