Significance: The Ford Mansion was completed in 1937 as Henry and Clara Ford's "Southern style" winter residence. Mrs. Ford wanted a home featuring wide porches, columns, and spacious rooms like the Greek Revival style homes they had visited in such Georgia towns as Athens, Washington, and Savannah. They appreciated the beauty and privacy the surrounding Ways Station area had to offer.
