Please note: Ford House is temporarily closed in response to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The grounds will be closed to the public until further notice, including for members and dog walks.

We will extend memberships for the length of the closure time.

We are working on our plans to re-open the estate when we are cleared by state regulations to do so, so please watch your email, this website and our Facebook page for updates.

Ford House is a house full of stories. A membership is an opportunity to add your own stories to the home of Edsel and Eleanor Ford.
