Take a look inside! Preservation Open House dates are May 19 and 20.

Join us for a special Open House in honor of National Preservation Month at Fair Lane, Home of Clara & Henry Ford, on May 19 and 20.

The extensive restoration projects continue and now you can see what we’ve been up to inside the house.

At the Open House, you will learn about first-floor projects, including:

  • The fully recreated Sun Porch – which looks just as Henry and Clara Ford knew it.
  • The paint removal from the wooden paneling and elements in the Music Room and Living Room.
  • The recreation of the marble fireplace surround in the Billiard Room.
  • Stone cleaning, painting and more in the Pool Room.
  • Ceiling restoration in the Library.
  • Painting, ceiling leafing, light fixture restoration in the Main Hall.
  • Plus many more projects going on throughout the home, as well as on the grounds.
