The Rock Ford mansion has stairs. The first floor and lower level are wheelchair accessible. The Museum shop is located on the lower level. In order to preserve the architectural integrity of our historic house museum, the mansion does not have restrooms in areas accessible by the public. However, a portable sanitation unit for visitor use is located in our parking lot from April through October. This unit is cleaned and serviced on a weekly basis. If you do not want to use this portable unit, we strongly encourage you to schedule a restroom stop prior to your visit.
