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 Fair Lane, Home of Clara & Henry Ford, is closed for restoration, the grounds and gardens are accessible to visitors on the following days.

  • 8 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, May 1-September 30.
  • 8 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays (closed weekends), October 1-April 30.

The house will open periodically for workshops and events to show the restoration in progress. Click the box below to the progress of the restoration on our blog.
