#Flashback Friday with the Historical Society: The Partridge House

It’s time for #FlashbackFriday with the Whitewater Historical Society!

Today’s flashback features one of Whitewater’s historic homes, the Partridge house. Located at 745 W. Center Street, it was built in about 1855 by John S. and Henrietta Partridge. John had migrated to the area in 1846 and opened up a general store downtown. From 1857 until the company’s dissolution in 1892, he was a partner in the Winchester & Partridge Manufacturing Company which produced the famous “Whitewater Wagon.” The home is pictured here in more recent times with the Jim and Claire Stewart family, who have lived in and taken care of this historic landmark for many years.
