The Ford House

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


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. 

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 fee with prior approval. The estate provides the perfect backdrop for milestone photography -- from child birthdays to senior portraits to wedding photos. 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.

The fee for wedding photography is $250, and $125 for all other occasion photography.

Wedding photography allows access to the grounds for two hours and for up to 24 people. A Ford House staff person will lead your group to the best spots of the season and share insights on what might be a nice location, depending on your personal interests (history, nature, water, etc.).
