— A Private Residence —

Timothy Ford, a native of Morristown, New Jersey, Princeton educated attorney who as a youth served in the American Revolution, built this fine Charleston single house in the Adamesque style. Ford entertained the Marquis de Lafayette here on the French Hero's visit to Charleston in 1824. The house remained the home of Ford's family for more than 100 years. His daughter married Edmund Ravenel, M.D., a noted conchologist and one of the founders of the Medical College of South Carolina in 1824. His friend, the naturalist Louis Agassiz, resided in the family's summer home on Sullivan's Island while studying local sea life.
