Ford Cove Project
Ford House, the historic estate of Edsel and Eleanor Ford, is teaming up with the Great Lakes Commission (GLC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for a project to restore disappearing wildlife habitats along the shoreline of Ford Cove on Lake St. Clair — part of Michigan’s Great Lakes waterway.
Nestled along the scenic shores of Lake St. Clair lies the illustrious Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, an architectural masterpiece and emblem of American history. This storied estate beckons with its timeless elegance, boasting breathtaking gardens, extraordinary interiors, and a legacy steeped in innovation and cultural influence. Beyond its historic significance as a home designed by renowned architects, it stands as a testament to the Ford family’s passion for art, design, and philanthropy. A visit to Ford House is an invitation to immerse oneself in a bygone era of sophistication, innovation, and the enduring legacy of an American dynasty.
