This chapter details Isaac Mayer Wise’s move at a large farm between North College Hill and Mount Healthy, and made it his principal residence. The farm lay nine miles north of Cincinnati. It is unusual, even in these days of instantaneous communications, for a clergyman to live at such a distance from the scene of his activities; in 1861 it must have been unprecedented. His congregation did not demur at Wise’s removing himself a distance of nine miles, and Wise, of whose endurance as a traveller there is ample evidence, presumably found driving to and from the city no strain. There is no information as to the role played by Mrs Wise in the decision, peculiarly within the concerns of a wife and mother, to move the family home. Family recollections suggest that the decision was that of the husband, and that the wife acquiesced reluctantly.
