We had been told to visit by friends, but when we drove up we were not impressed. We were greeted by super docent named Hub, who spent almost 3 hours talking about H.Ford and the area. This is a spot that few would notice but...More

Thanks folks! It's true, the old wooden clapboard building, a Kindergarten built by Henry Ford in 1940, is not initially all that impressive from the outside. The exterior of the building belies the amount of space it provides inside. It's hard to imagine that the...More

We went by this museum, set in a kindergarten building Henry Ford built, on a whim. The museum all by itself is fine, but a visitor will get so much more. The Docent has made this history his life's work and his passion shows. He...More

Richmond Hill is not particularly eye catching, but it will become so if you stop in here and let 'Hub' give you the tour. The museum looks like a 15-min. experience from the outside, but if Hub is there plan on 2 hours...it's worth your...More

It's true, our museum is housed in a former Kindergarten building that Henry Ford built in 1940. From the outside it appears to be small. I have had people pull into the parking lot and then just turn around and drive out! Fact is, we...More

The museum is relatively small but chocked full of interesting history. Nicely done! Well worth your time for adults, children and everyone in between.

We ran across this museum while visiting Savannah for the third time. I had read quite a bit about Henry Ford but didn't know anything about his winter home in Richmond Hill, only about his home in Florida. The museum was very well done and...More
