Director Tour Season – Kicks Off on October 17, 2015

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On August 30th

     The Edison Ford Director Tours have been a successful program for the past 14 years.  The Director Tours began as a program to inspire staff and friends by visiting other museums, gardens, great cities, old hotels, and restaurants around Florida and has continued to grow.
