Huddleston Farmhouse in Cambridge City, Indiana holds a key to our past on National Road. Built in 1841 by a Quaker family, that later left that church, it’s amazing to think that once upon a time they would have watched scores of soldiers walk past their home on the old National Road.
Two, and perhaps even three, of the Huddleston sons served in the war. It must have been an exhausting time for the family in what is now Cambridge City, Indiana, welcoming weary strangers in and helping them settle in for the night. The barn is amazing and currently used as a place to display art! It’s beautiful with the old beams.
When you tour the home, you can imagine the sound of soldiers clopping their way along the road, clangs of the train in the distance, and animals stomping and shuffling in the barn. It’s an amazing bit of Indiana history and something you should definitely see for yourself. If you are lucky, you will visit on a Saturday when the farmer’s market occurs in the ample parking lot.
