Ford House has Re-Opened for Tours
Posted: April 4, 2019

This week, Ford House re-opened its doors for public tours following a three-month closure for conservation work inside the home.
 
Tours are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and from Noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
 
Over the winter, Ford House staff took time for deep-cleaning and conservation care. Projects included repairing and painting the ceilings in the Dining Room and Cloister Hallway. Artisans from Historic Surfaces LLC helped to repair the plaster and then restore the ceiling to the original glaze, giving the rooms a warm glow.
 
 
Ford House is open during construction of the new visitor center and administration building. For information on tours, visit www.fordhouse.org/experience.
 
Visitor arrival is temporarily located in the historic garage, with nearby parking provided. Most annual events such as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra at Ford House, EyesOn Design Car Show, Michigan Humane Society Mutt March and Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society Pooch Prance will continue to be held on the estate’s grounds. Go to www.fordhouse.org/events to see what's coming up.
