The older generation might remember the old Hillsboro fire station that stood on the corner of West Walnut and South High streets that burned down a long, long time ago. My dad tells me he thinks it happened around 1948 and that Hillsboro made the news because the waterworks facility also burned down the same year.

    Ladies and gentlemen, a week ago we were confabulating about a time back in 1951 – nearly seven decades ago – when a pair of my relatives, Granville Barrere and Dr. Sigel Roush, met for a delightful afternoon.

    Ladies and gentlemen, if you follow my offerings, you know I’ve spent a bit of time as of late focusing on the Barrere family and their time in the newspaper business in Hillsboro from the 1880s through the early 1950s – but before that, I penned a series with a spotlight on Dr. Sigel Roush (1862-1954).

    Starting in 1908 when he took over the family business his father, George Washington Barrere, founded in the mid-1880s, Granville Barrere became known as one of the state’s outstanding newspapermen, perhaps best known for his weekly editorials.

    Ladies and gentlemen, if they would ever decide to do a “Mount Rushmore” of Highland County journalists, Granville Barrere would have to be up on that mountain.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when it comes to the Barrere boys in the newspaper business, we’ve reached the final Barrere, so to speak.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in our recent discourse, we’ve examined the life and times of the Barrere boys in the newspaper business. In the 1880s, Col. George Washington Barrere (1831-1913), a Civil War veteran, bought a pair of Highland County newspapers and merged them to form the Hillsboro News-Herald.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in the past couple of offerings in this series, we’ve confabulated about the life and times of Col. George Washington Barrere (1831-1913), Civil War veteran and founder of the Hillsboro News-Herald.

    "The boyhood life of Col. Barrere was similar to that of other boys of those pioneer days. He received his education in the common schools and finished at the Hillsboro Academy under the instruction of Prof. Isaac Sams. When a young man, he came to Hillsboro to live, clerking for a time in the store of the late James W. Patterson and later being employed in the bank of which his uncle, Benjamin Barrere, was president."

    Ladies and gentlemen, to me at least, there’s something nostalgic, almost romantic, about a family running a business for seven decades – but that’s exactly what the Barrere family in Hillsboro did beginning more than a century ago.
