Today at Ford House


Honor someone you love among the beautiful blooms of the Ford House Tribute Garden.

Your tax-deductible contribution helps Ford House create a beautiful and living tribute to honor a special person in your life. 
The Tribute Garden is in a unique and convenient location beside the new Visitor Center. Thoughtfully designed by Ford House’s talented landscape team, this garden is a place that visitors of all ages will enjoy from summer to late fall.
For a $250 donation, you may honor someone you love with a garden plaque and name on a sign in the garden.
Living honorees will receive a card notifying them of the gift made in their honor.
A sign recognizing each special person will be installed in the Tribute Garden by mid-June.
You can make your donation online by clicking here, or contact us at 313-884-4222 during business hours.

Ford House also offers a tribute on a special Tribute Garden sign and on benches around the estate each spring. Check back in 2022 for more details! Those donations are collected in April and May, and the signs are posted in June each year.
