Purchased in the summer of 2006 by the town of Jackson's Arm, the Stanley Ford Property is one of the oldest surviving properties in the community. Located on the water side of Main Street, it has considerable cultural landscape value as a restored cluster of domestic, fishery, and farm buildings.
Contained therein is a collection of tools and trinkets used the by the Ford family in their daily lives and leisure activities.
