The John Ford Home is a historic house museum Sandy Hook, Mississippi. It is also a historic landmark, 20 miles out of Columbia.

The John Ford Home was built in 1809 in the elevated frontier-style architecture that was common at the time in the Mississippi Valley, right along the Pearl River. Ford was actually a Reverend Ford who moved to Mississippi in 1798 from South Carolina. He was a Methodist minister and a farmer. The structure is also noted for being the site of the first Mississippi Methodist Conference in 1814 and the 1816 Pearl River Convention, aside from being the oldest frontier style home in the Pearl River Valley.

The John Ford Home is now preserved and maintained by the Marion County Historical Society. It is open to the public.
