Durham Home is a beautiful historic home built by Sarah and George Durham circa 1900, a block from downtown Crawfordsville. In 1937, upon her death, Sarah Durham stipulated in her will that the house would become a home for women to be called “Durham Home”. She established a Trust from the farmland income to maintain the home. The farmland has since been sold, and the proceeds were invested to ensure that the home would continue to be maintained in perpetuity. Durham Home has served as a safe, flexible, affordable home for women for over 75 years.
Durham Home offers a variety of unique rooms with affordable rates. Due to the generosity of Sarah Durham, the cost to live in Durham Home is considerably less than any other residence for women in the area.
Mature, independent women of varying ages are residents at Durham Home.
