About this event:

Step into the timeless legacy at the heart of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford estate. In 1928, the illustrious couple moved into their 30,000-square-foot English Cotswold-style haven, a resplendent sanctuary to nurture their cherished family of six. Experience the enchantment firsthand as our guides lead you through the halls of the Main Residence, unraveling the enchanting tales of Edsel, Eleanor, and their four children—Henry II, Benson, Josephine, and William.

Discover the allure of an era steeped in luxury and warmth as you explore the rooms, each a testament to the family’s discerning taste in art, design, and timeless artifacts. Delve into the family’s collection of artifacts that echo their refined sensibilities.

This guided tour spans 50 minutes. While the tour involves traversing staircases, regrettably, it’s unsuitable for individuals with mobility challenges. With limited tickets available, we urge you to secure your place in advance, ensuring an unparalleled voyage into the legacy of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford family—an experience that transcends time and imagination.
