Elisha Morgan Farm Mansion
Elisha Morgan purchased 48.6 acres in Fairfield
Townshippart of the Symmes Purchasein 1817. The
Farm Mansion was built shortly after he settled
the land. The house incorporates two
architectural styles prevalent in southwest Ohio
in the nineteenth century. The original front
portion is an example of Federal style
architecture while the 1858 rear addition
represents the Greek Revival style. Built earlier
than most farmsteads in the township, the Mansion
is a rare example of an early farmhouse that has
survived despite suburban development. The
Mansion is listed on the National Register of
Historic Places.
