The Ford House

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


We hope your visit to Ford House is memorable and special. You are welcome to take photos for personal use and to share on social media. 

We welcome you to take photographs while on tours of the home; however, for the safety of our guests and the collection, we do not permit flash photography, video, tripods, telephoto lenses and selfie sticks.

We also ask you to be courteous of others on tour to ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience.

Professional & Special Occasion Photography

Make your special day even more memorable by capturing your photos on the breathtaking grounds of Edsel & Eleanor Ford House. Professional photography is allowed for a $125 fee with prior approval.

The estate provides the perfect backdrop for milestone photography, from child birthdays to senior portraits, and from engagements to bride-and-groom portraits! There are several lovely locations on the expansive grounds from which to choose. The inside of the house is not open for special occasion photography.

We are sorry, but due to construction on the estate we can only accommodate the bride and groom -- not entire wedding parties -- for portraits.
