An Evening for Fair Lane 2023

An Evening for Fair Lane in Dearborn took place on Aug. 31 at the home of Henry and Clara Ford. Attendees had the opportunity to experience the restored and reimagined National Historic Landmark. Funds raised at the event allow the team of artisans and conservators to continue their work at Fair Lane, helping to ensure this important part of American history and the legacy of the Fords is preserved. The evening began in the music room and terrace where Edsel B. Ford II and his wife, Cynthia, welcomed guests to the home of his great grandparents, while Ford CEO Jim Farley provided brief remarks. A stroll through Clara’s gardens led to Henry’s power house and garage, where the evening continued with a buffet and cocktails. // Photographs by Patrick Gloria
