A Home with a History

Every home has a story, but this one in particular is riddled with history.  This newly listed Portland condo was once home to John Ford, the acclaimed Film Director of "Stagecoach," "The Iron Horse," "Grapes of Wrath," and over 100 other Hollywood films. 


We've enjoyed researching John Ford's impressive life & career and his legacy he left behind, read on to see what we were able to dig up:

You may be wondering where you've heard the name John Ford in Maine. As you can see above, there is a statue on Gorham's Corner commemorating his life and impact on Maine throughout his career. Directing 130 films over the course of his life, John Ford made major contributions to film as we know it and this statue was introduced in 1998 to honor that. LEARN MORE HERE!

This home has served as a stop for John Ford fans from across the state, country, and globe. READ HERE for an article from the LA Times and HERE for an article from Boston's Art Fuse on the impact he had on Portland, but also how much people value him beyond our state.

John Ford lived on Sheridan Street- but so did two other Irish-American figures in Maine! To learn about how John Ford crossed paths with Pat A. Mahoney & Michael H. Myers, READ HERE!

Now, take a peek inside Mr. Ford's childhood home and explore the style & substance 21 Sheridan Street offers today:
