The Ford House

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

Croquet League

Walking the grounds and imagining what it was like to be a part of the Ford family is fun, but why not play like the Fords, too?  Enjoy friendly competition or take a break and soak in the summer nights with a drink and view of the lake.  

Check the Croquet League Facebook group for weekly updates on standings, scores, and to share your pictures!

Members will play from 6-9 pm. on Wednesdays for 10 weeks. The full schedule is posted below.
