Environmental Tours

We see the Fords' beautiful lakeside estate with its gorgeous grounds and gardens as reliable and constant, but really it has been changing dramatically over millennia and still is changing today. Learn about the causes and results of these environmental changes -- from shallow saltwater seas to an iceberg of epic proportions.

This tour is for all ages. This will be an outdoor walking tour. Wear good walking shoes, as we will cover over a mile of walking on uneven ground. No refunds or exchanges, unless the tour is canceled for inclement weather. All participants must follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask for the duration of the tour.

Cost: $10 for adults, $5 for children, Ford House members are FREE.


Our outdoor tours cover uneven ground, pebble paths, and may go through the rose garden which has a few stairs. They also cross the lawn. 
If you have accessibility needs or concerns, our tour staff can work with you to schedule an accessible tour. Please contact Sheila Ruen at  sruen[at]  and she will make the arrangements. Accessibility is important to us, and we want everyone to be able to share in the Ford House experience. If you have more questions you can also call Sheila at 313-884-4222.
