Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last time along the road to the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by my parents, Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, we were in the late 1880s and a bitter family feud was brewing.

    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, passed away in 1867 at the age of 59, it was noted that his eight children were still living at the time of his death.

    Ladies and gentlemen, back in the days 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, walked this earth, it wasn’t uncommon for parents to lose children at a young age.

    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.
