Restore &

For Clara and Henry Ford, their estate, Fair Lane, was more than just a home. It was a place where they took simple ideas and turned them into actions that opened the highway to all mankind. More than 100 years later, we are bringing back Fair Lane to be a place of discovery, exploration and inspiration.

While the house is closed for restoration, the grounds are accessible to visitors on weekdays, and you can follow along on our blog to learn about the work going on inside.
