On October 27, Edison & Ford Winter Estates was honored to host a visit from Edsel Ford II who was accompanied by a film crew for the production of a video for the Ford Dealerships.
This is the second time that Mr. Ford visited the Fort Myers Ford Estate in the past few years and he noted the continuing improvements to the Ford Estate in Fort Myers. He was joined for lunch by members of the Edison Ford Board of Trustees and CEO Chris Pendleton. The topics were lively and included the quadricycle that Edison Ford is in the midst of building and the on-going restoration work at Edison Ford and at Ford’s Fair Lane Estate in Dearborn and the Edsel Ford Estate in Gross Pointe. The new collaboration of all of the Ford properties is benefitting the Ford legacy and public programming for all.
Mr. Ford also learned that his great grandfather Henry Ford was just inducted into the Florida Inventor’s Hall of Fame through the work of staff at Edison Ford. He was visited by Edison Ford’s Clara and Henry Ford and Mina and Thomas Edison, as well as students from the Edison Ford Robotics Camp, and the public.
