Ladies and gentlemen, when my great-great-great grandfather Joshua Brown, the patriarch of the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, was born May 6, 1807, Thomas Jefferson was president of the United States and Ohio had been a state for two whopping years.

    Ladies and gentlemen, on Jan. 31, 1860, Joshua Brown bought 112 acres of land that would be the catalyst that led to the Brown-Roush Farm west of Hillsboro being designated an Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm in 2019.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the year was 1860 – James Buchanan was president of the United States, though Abraham Lincoln won election to the office that year, future Supreme Court Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase started the year as Ohio governor, the United States was on the brink of the Civil War, and old farmer Brown bought 52.853 additional acres of land.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as we wrap up this 175th celebration series of offerings on Scott House mansion and Highland House museum, we look at the uptown landmark built by William Scott since it’s been owned by the Highland County Historical Society.

  • Scott House history, preservation

    Ladies and gentlemen, when Elizabeth Woodbridge Scott died in 1946, the Scott House on West Main Street in Hillsboro was bought at an auction with the intention of turning the property into a car showroom and sales lot, but the Hillsboro school board ended up purchasing the property. The Scott House was home of the Hillsboro library from the late 1940s until the library was relocated to its present location in the early 1970s.

    Ladies and gentlemen, for more than a century, the Scott House mansion, which was built 175 years ago, was occupied by Scotts. For review (and there will be a quiz later), the Scott House, the three-story abode on West Main Street currently owned by the Highland County Historical Society, was completed circa 1844 by Hillsboro attorney William Scott.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as William Scott reached his 70s in the 1880s, his health began to decline. The attorney who had the historic Scott House in uptown Hillsboro built 175 years ago died in the Scott House mansion about 9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13, 1886.
