Edison and Ford Winter Estates is the historic home site of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. The site also includes a 15,000-square-foot inventions museum, the 1928 botanic research laboratory (a National Historic Chemical Landmark), caretaker’s houses, gift shops, Edison’s guesthouse and study – all on more than 20 acres of botanic gardens. The Edison & Ford Winter Estates just finished more than $14 million in restoration to the historic buildings and gardens and won the top recognition from National Trust Award for Preservation in 2009. The Inside the Homes Tour takes visitors through normally-closed areas of Thomas Edison’s and Henry Ford’s winter estate homes.
