As good as the Ford Museum is, and I think it is Great
, the Greenfield Village that Henry Ford assembled is amazing. Seeing the buildings, Not Replica's, but the actual buildings of places like the Wright's bicycle shop relocated from Dayton and Edisons Lab from N J and a whole mess of other historically significant buildings from around the country really make those inventors "come alive" !
I first visited the place as a kid in 1958. In addition to the Museum and the Village, part of the several day visit included a tour of the River Rogue Ford Assembly Plant. At that time the facility did a 'soup to nuts' car creation at the one factory...going from raw iron ore to steel production to fabricating and assembly-line car production. I can't imagine a modern factory tour that included a walk across suspended catwalks in the steel-furnace area with heat and sparks all around the 'visitors'...but they did it at that time !
For me the high-point of the Ford Museum visit were the Locomotives on display. I think I played 'engineer' for hours on those giants ! More recently seeing the Lincoln 'Presidential Limo' that JFK was riding in in Dallas brought back some somber memories of where I was when that terrible moment occurred.
The whole complex is a wonderful place to become reacquainted with our American Heritage. If you haven't visited it, I urge you to give it a couple of days ...You will never forget the experience.
