Edsel and Eleanor Ford House and Garden: Making History



 The beautiful home of the Ford’s was made available and open to the public in 1978 for all to see! Not only does it house gorgeous antiques but a part of history is felt there. It sits on a fantastic 87 acres that can hold just about any event! Especially weddings! For a beautiful outdoor ceremony or reception or even an all indoor location to house your day in history, the Ford House is worth looking into!


The Activities Center provides indoor accommodations for up to 200 guest groups! They offer four
different rooms and all at discounted rates! Due to the fact that the Ford House is non-profit, all proceeds go directly to charitable causes for the communities benefit! What a great legacy for Eleanor Ford to leave behind!
