  • Architecture is phenomenal. Some of the rooms were updated in the 1930s and designs are far ahead of their time. Amazing mansion and I am grateful it's open to the public. Christine was our tour guide and her knowledge of the history of the family and house is excellent. You can also walk the grounds to see the playhouse (adorable), the pool house with a squash court, and the rose garden. Loved it.
  • I'm not completely into history or the Ford family, but my husband is which is why I went. The tour of the home is well done and interesting. The grounds are very pretty. There are some great pieces of art inside the home. Currently the pool and the garage are under renovations and will be really neat once done. You do walk outside at the end of the tour, so bring an umbrella or rain jacket if it could rain (we weren't told this). It was decent way to occupy a couple of hours while in the area for vacation.
