Many of Henry and Clara Ford’s relatives also made their homes in Dearborn. Descendants of the area’s early farming families, they embraced the city’s transformation into an industrial powerhouse. Some worked for Ford Motor Co., others followed entrepreneurial and political livelihoods. Their successes can be seen in the homes they left behind in neighborhoods throughout Dearborn.
Historian Glenn O’Kray will share a look at the big footprint the Ford and Bryant families left in Dearborn. There are grand houses – and modest ones, too – throughout the city. Could you be living next door to one of these historical landmarks? Join us on Monday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m. at the McFadden-Ross House to learn more.
The meeting will be held at the Dearborn Historical Museum, 915 S. Brady. It will also be available on Preservation Dearborn's Facebook page.
