The University of Michigan-Dearborn and the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan have reached an agreement to unite the Henry Ford Estate and Ford House in what will become a national model of sustainability and 21st century interpretation of our nation's heritage. With the agreement, the University is in the process of transferring ownership of the Henry Ford Estate to the Ford House. The Estate is closed to allow for restoration work. The Ford House anticipates the Estate will reopen in phases as restoration is completed; however, there is no date set for re-opening.
For additional information regarding the status of the transfer or to make a contribution to further restoration and restoration efforts, please call the UM-Dearborn Office of Business Affairs (email@example.com or 313-593-5110).
