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, many years ago the Highland County Historical Society created the Highland County Hall of Fame to recognize, honor and celebrate those who have made invaluable contributions to the county and/or the world beyond. By honoring and recognizing these people, the Hall of Fame serves to stimulate an interest in – and appreciation for – the value of the history of this county and its citizens. Further, the Hall reinforces to our youths that they can, and should, strive for excellence in any endeavor they may undertake.
