Fundraising tour of Ford mansion, grounds planned

POSTED: September 24, 2012 12:00 p.m.

The Richmond Hill Historical Society will conduct a fundraising tour of the Ford Plantation, including the Ford mansion, from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 6.

The guided tour will begin at the Richmond Hill Museum, 11460 Ford Ave, where participants will board a trolley car.

A reception at the museum will follow the tour.

The mansion once was owned by Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company, in the 1930s and ‘40s as a winter home.
Tickets are $25 a piece for society members and $35 apiece for nonmembers.

Deadline to purchase tickets is Wednesday. Limited seating is available.

All proceeds benefit the restoration of the Ford kindergarten building, which now is the museum.

For more information, call 756-3697.
