Milford-Army Officers at funeral.jpg (420458 bytes)      Gov. Pattisons Funeral-Bugler.jpg (319975 bytes)      Promont Late Residence-Milford.jpg (295846 bytes)      John Pattison Governor 11-05 died 6-06 Milford.jpg (80773 bytes)      Milford-Patterson Home.jpg (101445 bytes)

   Two cards showing the O.N.G. at the funeral in Milford of  John M. Pattison, 43rd governor of Ohio. Elected 11 / 1905,  Died 06 / 1906. He was also president of Union Central Life Insurance Co. He died from Bright's disease. The last 3 cards are of the Governors Home, Promont, in Milford. This Victorian Italianate mansion was built between 1865 and 1867 by William Megrue. Megrue managed to lose his fortune before construction was completed in 1867 and in 1869 Megrue's estate sold the property to John Armstrong Wade who called it "Beechwood." Milford residents began referring to the mansion as "the Castle" because of its attached tower that rises 5 stories from the basement to its observation room. Wade lost the mansion thru foreclosure and Pattison bought the property and its 56 acres in 1879. Pattison's father-in-law called it Promont because of its location high above the city of Milford. After his death ownership passed through several owners until it was left to the Milford Historical Society in 1983, where it is now headquartered. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
