The city of Wyandotte offers tours of the Ford-MacNichol Home throughout the year. The main attraction of the Museums campus, the house sits at the corner of Biddle Avenue and Vinewood, directly across from the Bacon Memorial Public Library, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The building of this grand home was completed in 1896, and it boasts four floors for visitors to tour, displaying decoration and exhibits on each. Elegantly-appointed, and the height of technology during the late-Victorian Era, American plate glass pioneer, Edward Ford, built a lavish home for his daughter Laura and her new husband, George MacNichol, equipped with a heating system, plumbing, and electrical lighting.
Tours will be offered March-October and December on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm-5:00pm, with the final tour beginning at 4:30pm. Admission is free, so stop on by as many times as you’d like!
