Eber Durham House

Eber Durham House

This attractive Greek Revival house was built in 1845 by Stephen Jennings an early owner of the Sixteen Mile House (now the Botsford Inn). He built the house as a wedding gift for his daughter Jane when she married Eber Durham. A civic minded individual, Durham served the community as a highway commissioner, justice of the peace and drain commissioner. In 1924 Henry Ford purchased the house and restored it as a private residence. It was moved to this site in 1983.
