Peek Inside The "Nooks and Crannies" at Ford House!

This unique guided tour take you on a behind-the-scenes exploration of Ford House, peeking behind closed doors, navigating private staircases, and exploring hidden spaces.

You will see the infirmary, the underground tunnel to the Powerhouse, the attic, and the expansive basement. Hear about the devoted professional staff who worked behind the scenes, and how the house has adapted and changed over the course of nine decades.

This tour requires climbing up and down multiple flights of stairs, and because of these constraints, it is not wheelchair accessible. Each tour is limited to 8 visitors, so advance registration is strongly recommended.

This tour is about 55 minutes long. If you only want to see the main living areas in the residence, please purchase a self-guided house pass.
