MPF LONG TERM GOAL REALIZED!
We are excited to announce the acquisition of the
Eliphalet Ferris House at 3915 Plainville Road. This
original pioneer house was built in 1802 and expanded during latter years up
to 1812. It is the oldest brick building in Hamilton County still standing at
its original location and is listed on the National Register of Historic
Places. It served as the Mariemont Company Headquarters and triangular survey
station during the construction of Mariemont area and as a museum housing the
Native American artifacts discovered during the construction of Mariemont.
Richard H Dana restored the house in 1927 and in 1936 the Daughters of the
American Revolution furnished some of the rooms. Over the following years it
has been an architect’s office, a doctor’s office and more recently an
educational consulting business. It is the goal of MPF to return this
historic pioneer house to its original intended use as a museum.
