But that was then, after a fire accidentally set by two teenagers in April 2003 gutted the four-story, Romanesque-style building that since 1885 has covered a downtown block.

Now, after a three-year, million project, the Carlisle will reopen today with office space for Adena Health System on the first floor and 32 urban-loft apartments for the medical students in the hospital’s physician residency programs on the other three.

On the National Register of Historic Places, the Carlisle is easily identifiable by the trademark tower that juts more than 100 feet into the sky and its fancy mansard dormer windows. It’s prime real estate at the heart of the town square, across from the Ross County Courthouse in a city rich with history because it was Ohio’s first capital.
