Grounds and gardens at Henry Ford’s Fair Lane estate reopen

The grounds and gardens at Fair Lane, the former estate of Henry and Clara Ford, have reopened to the public.
Although the gardens are reopened, the Fair Lane residence and powerhouse remain closed for renovation, according to a news release.
Fair Lane, located at 1 Fair Lane Drive in Dearborn, will now be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free.
The 17-acre grounds include a rose garden with more than 300 rose bushes, a fountain and copper roofed tea house, an English style perennial garden, and a tribute garden with various annuals and perennial plants, the release said. The grounds also include woodland trails that continue onto the University of Michigan Dearborn’s Environmental Study Area.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are asked to wear masks when visiting the grounds and to maintain a social distance of six feet from others. The release stated restrooms are closed because of building restorations, and dogs will not be allowed on the premise.
