Dr. James Ford Historic Home

Dr. James Ford lived his life in the nineteenth century as a physician, family man, surveyor, agronomist, architect, and Civil War surgeon. His 1841 home was expanded to become a 4,000 square foot residence by the 1870s. Visitors are invited to explore the home of Dr. Ford and his family, as well as the historic gardens where he grew herbs to use in his medical practice.
