Deborah Hadley House

This is a private home, so please pull off the road in front of the house. Use your blinkers.

The Wilmington-Lebanon Pike was laid out in 1810 when Clinton County was formed from parts of Warren and Highland Counties, in order to connect the new Clinton County seat of Wilmington to the old Warren County seat of Lebanon. While the earliest settlers in this neighborhood built their log or brick houses on the rises above Todds Fork, the next generation built their houses along the new road.

Deborah Hadley (1830-1902) was a daughter of settlers Jonathan T. Hadley and Rebecca Harvey Hadley. She received a 130-acre farm from her father. She was a skillful quilter and faithful Quaker. She left an endowment for the support of Springfield Meeting in her will. An outstanding white-on-white quilt made by her is on display at the Clinton County History Center.
