Higbee house in Milford

This grand old house, still lived in today, has stood since the early 1860s. Known to some as the Higbee house, it is on South Main Street at the intersection with First Street in Milford. It was built by Dr. Edward Higbee. It is believed he thought the Civil War would come as far north as Milford and a hospital would be needed. There is a Higbee Street (State Road 15) in Milford which may have been named after Edward.



About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
