Living On A Ship On Land

All aboard the Benson Ford. This ship, first launched on the Great Lakes in 1924, carried raw materials for the Ford Motor Company until it was decommissioned in 1981. It then found an unlikely new life on land as a house. Beached on the shores of the island of Put-In-Bay, Ohio, the Benson Ford now boasts five bedrooms, five full baths, a reading room, a galley and of course spectacular views of the water from the pilot house. See the interior at the house’s own website: Ship On The Bay.
