A restored 19th Century

physician's home and surgery.



Enter the Dr. Ford Historic Home and journey back to the Victorian Era. Period interiors, flower and medicinal gardens, and a horse stable all invite guests to explore life as it was in the mid-1800s for surgeon Dr. James Ford and his family.

Educational lectures, children’s events, historical tours, and more are all a part of the Dr. Ford Historic Home’s regular public offerings.  For a complete list of upcoming events, please visit the Dr. Ford Historic Home website.



The historic home was previously owned and operated by the Charley Creek Foundation. Pursuing a vision of preserving historic assets and enhancing Wabash’s arts and cultural assets, the Charley Creek Foundation was pleased to transfer ownership to The Honeywell Foundation in early 2015.


Before his passing in 2014, Charley Creek Foundation founder, Richard Ford, requested The Honeywell Foundation continue the growth and direction of the Dr. Ford Historic Home. Mr. Ford had a long history with The Honeywell Foundation as a Life Member, serving as part of the official governing body.
