Thought you might find this interesting. (I hope I uploaded this correctly.)
Henry Ford's Booty Call.html (77.7 k)
Yes it was interesting. Thanks. I've read on Henry's clandestine adventures before but nice to see additional information and pics of buildings, etc. Didn't know about his "grandson" being killed in Grand Rapids. My wife grew up in GR and I had lived there several years so normally we are attuned to goings on there.
Yea I had a acquaintance that had a nice Model A roadster that he claimed Henry gave his mistress and somehow later on it was ordered destroyed and thru the years he got a hold of it. I figured it was just a bunch of bunk. No pictures show up on the story. Annoying.
read the book "The Last Days of Henry Ford"
This story popped up here a couple of years back. I "google earthed" and found the "mansion". You can even go to the street view and "drive" right up to the main entrance, but it's so grown over I doubt you could drive a car up to the house. I'm not sure I could find it again, but I'll try if I get a chance.
Found it. If you're interested,
20690 Williamsburg Rd
Dearborn Heights, Michigan
somebody is paying a lot of taxes on that property. on the river, big parcel, lot of money i'll bet. who owns it now?
I found some pics. Why is it is left to waste? Looks like it would be a really nice home to refurbish.
When I was in High School, my Grandmother told me about Henry's Mistress. She knew her personally. I don't remember to much about that story as she had so many other ones to tell me about my Grandfather's time at Ford during 1906 thru 1908.
