It is really just a pretty garden setting with a side of President Ford. According to the provided information, he only lived at the site from his birth until he was 18 days old. I found it rather disappointing that President Trump had not been...More

This is a beautiful hidden area with historic information about President Ford. Love the landscaping and they fact that you do not realize it is here. Lots of information. I attended a wedding here as well that was quite beautiful

Gerald Ford's birthplace was in Nebraska, but he always called Michigan his home. This was site was built in his honor quite some time ago. It is located in the Filed Club area and blends in well with the surrounding neighborhood. The site is maintained,...More

Gorgeous place for a wedding. Has the perfect setting. Especially in the spring with the flowers and greens. Kind of off the beaten path.

This is the spot where Gerald Ford was born. The house is gone but the memorial is on the right spot. Probably our most "accidental president" his service to the country in the House and as President are probably underappreciated.

Overall this is a nice place. I recently stopped by with my cousin from out of town, and I noticed that it seems to be in poorer shape than in the past. I don’t know what agency is in charge of maintaining this facility, but...More

Outdoor area with a small display about Gerald Ford. There are some plants, which doubles the amount of area to enjoy. Not worth a trip for its own sake, unless you are a Gerald Ford historian. Worth the walk across the street if you happen...More
