Ward Farmhouse on the move and on the market
Drivers using the busy Cleveland/Main Street corridor in Mishawaka know the Daniel Ward farmhouse – a true landmark in the area. Now it needs a new home.
Daniel Ward struck it rich in 1849 when he went to California during the gold rush. Returning to Saint Joseph County, Indiana, he purchased a land in the northern part of the county and set about farming – living in the home until the late 1800s.
Now, the 2,500-square-foot home he constructed in 1865 must be relocated to make way for a new commercial and residential development planned for the site. Indiana Landmarks is working with the developer, Great Lakes Capital, to find a new location for the house; we’ll move it this fall.
We estimate the cost for the move, foundation and excavation will be $65,000, to which we’ll add the expense of utility line moves, new lot and renovation. See additional photos of the house online.
