This two story house was built circa 1850 using hand-hewn 12-inch boards put together with pegs. The house was moved back about 30 feet from the highway in 1994 and remodeled by Marilyn Felts. During remodeling, modern conveniences were added to the house while still retaining its original charm. This house is a contributing property to the Pushmataha Historic District that was added to the Alabama Register of Heritage and Landmarks in 2008. The Ford House is also included in Alabama’s Tapestry of Historic Places published by the Alabama Historical Commission.
The Ford House is located beside Highway 10 in the community of Pushmataha in Choctaw County, AL (GPS coordinates 32.189183,-88.34791).
This is a private residence – drive by only.
