Hundreds of previously unpublished photographs and illuminating text passages stunninglly trace the story from Ford's earliest visions through the latest major re-installation of the 14-acre museum building during the golden anniversary year of the institution's founding. Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum complex [now known as The Henry Ford] is one of the most fantastic museum complexes in the country. Greenfield Village, collection of nearly 100 historic buildings on a 200-acre (80-hectare) site in Dearborn, southeastern Michigan, U. S. It was established in 1933 by industrialist Henry Ford, who relocated or reconstructed buildings there from throughout the United States. The village includes the birthplaces, homes, or workplaces of Ford, William Holmes McGuffey, Noah Webster, Luther Burbank, and Wilbur and Orville Wright. Also featured are Thomas A. Edison's laboratory from Menlo Park, New Jersey, a Stephen Foster memorial, a courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law, a steam-powered paddleboat and several locomotives, and representative English and early American homes, public buildings, and craft shops. The adjoining Henry Ford Museum houses a collection of Americana. The village still has livestock, carriage rides, and a working forge, to name but few of the attractions. My favorite time to visit is during the autumn, during the week, when it is very quiet there. As you walk along the roads, following the timeline of the buildings, you can easily imagine yourself in a fantastic oasis of peace and history. Ford was a great admirer of Thomas Edison; not only is Edison's Menlo Park lab building there, but the trash pile was dug up and moved too, as well as the Sarah Jordan Boarding House, where many of the workers stayed. To further honor Edison, the museum complex was opened on 21 October 1929, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the incandescent lightbulb. Edison was present at the opening of the museum. 4 appendices; index.
