The Ford House

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

Rose Garden

Jensen designed the Rose Garden at the request of Eleanor Ford. It is not typical of Jensen's design, as roses require many hours of maintenance. The garden contains hundreds of roses in various pastel shades. The corners are planted with blue lilacs, which Jensen often used.

The Rose Garden is significant because it exemplifies one of the ingredients in large estates designed during the Golden Age of American Gardening, which flourished between 1880 and 1940.
