This modest frame building was a home and medical office constructed in 1859 by physician W.W. Mayo. W. W. Mayo hand-built the Gothic-style home in 1859 and set up his first medical practice in a room upstairs. In 1863, Dr. Mayo was appointed examining surgeon for the Minnesota Civil War draft board, headquartered in Rochester. Later, Dr. Mayo and his sons founded the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

In 1874, the Cosgroves moved into the home. In 1903, Carson Nesbit Cosgrove conducted the organizational meeting and later served as the head of the Minnesota Valley Canning Company, which became the Green Giant Company in 1950.

The house is now operated as a museum by the Mayo House Interpretive Society.
