If you are ever in the area be sure to take the tour. Well worth the time. I liked the 8 car garage with the turntable. Drive in and drive out, no backing up. The Play house is also something to see. Every thing scaled to kid size, but built like a real home.

Below is some copy from Wikipedia.
Edsel Ford died in this house in 1943 and his wife Eleanor Ford lived there until her death in 1976. It was her wish that the property be used for "the benefit of the public". The Edsel & Eleanor Ford House is open to the public for guided tours. Located on 87 acres (350,000 m2) at 1100 Lake Shore Road in Grosse Pointe Shores, the 20,000 square feet (1,858 m2) house has a fine collection of original antiques and art, and beautiful lakefront grounds. The grounds include the frontage on Ford's Cove, the total Lake St. Clair waterfront of the property is 3,100 ft. (985 m). The house currently hosts special events, classes and lectures, The estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
