Colonel Henry Brown’s House – Part 4

The house's sheer scale is startling when seen in this shot looking north 
across the Ford plant's roof toward the lake.
I never imagined that I would see actual photos of Colonel Henry Brown’s historic house other than the images that accompanied the 1947 and 1956 articles that ran in the Lorain Journal.

Thus it was a pleasant surprise when I discovered that the house had made it into several aerial photos of the Ford Motor Company plant that are in the photo archives of the Lorain Historical Society. Above you see one of them.

The photos – some of which are identified as a 'Bill Long' photo – reveal a huge, lonely farm house completely out of place with the modern factory nearby.

Here are a few more shots from the Lorain Historical Society's archives.
