The Higgins family once lived in a home at this address. (Higgins is Margaret Sanger’s premarital surname; her father, Michael Higgins, was in his day Corning’s most visible freethought activist.) This location is the only address of a Higgins family home that could be verified with historical records. It is unknown whether any portion of the present structure was in existence when the Higginses resided here.
