Have a happy Labor Day holiday!
Posted: September 1, 2014

The Summer is winding down – and, hopefully, this weekend you can too.

With the Estate’s 3,000 feet of shoreline, picnic areas, treasure hunts, Character Weekends, and more, enjoy all the summer fun Ford House has to offer!
 
Picnic. The Grounds, dotted with several picnic tables and benches, are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. this holiday weekend. Just BYOB (bring your own basket).

Tour the House
. See Edsel and Eleanor's beloved 1929 home on a guided tour. On Friday, Saturday and Monday, tours start at 10 a.m., and the last one begins at 4 p.m. Sunday tours begin at noon, with the last one at 4 p.m. They start every half hour.
 
See the exhibits. There are two exhibits to experience this holiday weekend - Creating Neverland: The Art of Disney's Mary Blair in South Cottage and the Women Who Motor exhibit in the Garage. Exhibit hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
 
Walk your pup. From 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday, bring your dog (on a leash!) to Ford House and enjoy strolling in front of the lake, along the roads, and wherever your pooch's nose leads you!

Meet characters and go on a treasure hunt. It's the last Neverland weekend at Ford House! Treasure Hunts take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and characters - Peter Pan, TinkerBell and Wendy - will be at Josephine's PlayHouse from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For details, go here.
 
Dine in the Café. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, take a seat - indoor or outdoors! - at the Cotswold Café for delicious popovers, a relaxing glass of wine, and a tasty meal.
 
Have a sun- and fun-filled Labor Day holiday!
