This photo of the Rankin family at the John Ford Home is in an old scrapbook at The Marion County Museum & Archives. The photo was taken around 1898. Details have been enlarged and the handwritten notes on the back of the photo identifies those in the photo. The John Ford Home is currently being stabilized as winds from storms in April damaged some of the structure. The work on the home will continue into next year. The John Ford Home and grounds are not currently open to the public.
