The Bill Wilson House in East Dorset, Vermont is the birthplace and living memorial of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson. With 14 guestrooms and a conference room the non-profit bed and breakfast is a center for recovery seminars and regular AA and ALANON meetings.
The building was constructed and opened as a hotel in 1852 in the small Vermont marble quarry village. The owners were the Griffith family. William (Bill) Griffith Wilson was born on November 26 of 1895 on the ground floor behind the bar of the hotel during a snow storm. After 2 years he moved to Rutland, Vt. until the divorce of his parents. Then, at the age of 11, Bill and his sister, Dorothy, returned to East Dorset to live with their maternal grandparents, the Griffiths. In 1987 the building had been vacant for several years and Ozzie Bonnie bought it in order to turn it into a living memorial to Bill W. Since then the building underwent constant renovations and is now a functioning guest house and conference center. Bill W. is buried close by in a cemetery next to his wife Lois and the Griffith family.
Room 9 of the hotel is believed to be the room where Bill and Lois stayed during one of their visits.
