Please call today to schedule a tour!
Built in 1867—one hundred years before Philip and Elisabeth bought the building—the Bickford Home was built as a single residence home for Henry Huffman, co-founder with Lyman Bickford of Macedon's "Bickford and Huffman Co." The business specialized in agricultural machinery such as plows and grain drills. The Bickford Home was also built next to Macedon's Historic Baptist Church, founded in the year 1800.
Conveniently located in the old village of Macedon, the Bickford Home is only a short walk to the local Macedon Public Library, the Butterfly Nature Trail, the Erie Canal Walking Path, several restaurants, pizza places, and the American Legion. Once we reach an end to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, please stop by and admire all the history our home has to offer. We cannot wait to meet you!
