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 are accessible to visitors daily during the summer, and you can follow along on our blog to learn about the work going on inside.
