The Ford House

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House tells the story of the home life of a prominent American family.


We want your visit to Ford House to be memorable. We invite you to take flash-free pictures of the house and auxiliary buildings; however, for the safety of visitors and the collection, we do not permit flash photography, video, tripods, telephoto lenses or selfie sticks inside historic buildings.

While strolling through the gardens and grounds visitors are welcome to use flash photography, video, tripods, telephoto lenses, and selfie sticks; however, drones are not permitted.

We would love to follow your experience. Share your images on social media with the hashtag #FordHouse.
