Clergyman John Adams Paddock (1825-1894) served as the first Missionary Episcopal Bishop in the Washington Territory; he came to Tacoma, WA, from Brooklyn, NY, in 1881, with his wife Fannie C. Paddock (1832-1881) and their 5 offspring, and was installed as head of the Bishopric of Olympia from 1880-1894. Paddock assisted in the formation of the Annie Wright Schools and the Fannie C. Paddock Memorial Hospital during his tenure. At the time of their departure, Paddock's wife was already raising money to found a hospital in their new home, but died en route to Tacoma; grief-stricken, her husband finished soliciting funds to build the hospital and determined that it bear her name. It opened on 04/29/1882, exactly a year after her death. The Seattle architectural firm Boone and Meeker designed this house for the Bishop.
