The Ford House

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


Photography Policy

During your visit, you are welcome to take photos on the grounds, gardens and exterior of buildings for personal use and to share on social media. Inside the Main House, you may use your camera in the Gallery room during your tour to capture memories of your visit. Professional photography must be approved ahead of time and requires a fee.

Professional 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 cannot accommodate entire wedding parties for portraits, just the bride and groom.
