The Greigs of Eldred

The Greig family home courtesy of Ed G. and Kevin M.

The massive Greig home built in the early 1890s, was south of Mill/Stege’s Pond and Road. Robert, Kate, Isabelle, and Bennett Greig lived in the huge Greig House. Robert’s sister Jane, his sister-in-law Julia and her daughter lived there also.

The Greigs owned over 100,000 acres in Highland, Lumberland, Tusten, and Bethel. They bought the land in lots of 400 acres or larger for the water rights because they believed steam power was the wave of the future.—Ed G. as told to Kevin M.
