The Board of Trustees of Ford House has announced a comprehensive master plan to restore, reconstruct, and rehabilitate the estate.The first phase included the site improvements completed in 2015, and included initiatives to upgrade electrical, water run-off and irrigation systems, making the entire estate run more green in the process.
In fall 2017, work began on the second phase, including construction of a state-of-the-art Visitor Center and Administration Building. This is the first major alteration to the estate in 25 years, and the largest new construction since the home was built in 1928.
Ground broke on the project on Nov. 14, 2017. The completion date for the new facilities has moved due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A new opening date for the new Visitor Center and Administration Building has not been anounced. Watch this website and our Facebook page for updates.
