Henry Ford Estate

Description

Fair Lane, the palatial estate of auto pioneer Henry Ford, is surprisingly modest as 56-room mansions go. It was built in 1914, only a few miles from the farm where Ford was born. Ford requested that building costs not exceed $250,000; the final price came in at nearly ten times that amount. Guided tours are given as follows: January to March, Tuesday through Friday 1:30 PM, Sunday from 1 PM to 4:30 PM, closed Monday and Saturday; April to December, Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM to 3 PM, Sunday 1 PM to 4:30 PM, closed Monday. Admission costs $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and students, $6 for children under 12, and children 4 and under are free. After your tour, you can have lunch in the Pool Restaurant housed in the wing where the indoor swimming pool used to be. It's open from 11 AM to 2 PM, Tuesday through Friday. The estate is located on the University of Michigan-Dearborn campus.
