The Haldimand Chapter of the Classic Ford Truck Club joined Topplane Travel on their tour to Dearborn, Michigan to The Henry Ford – the history destination that brings the “American Experience” to life. We were visiting during “This Old Car Festival” weekend. Greenfield Village was filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of hundreds of authentic vehicles from the 1890s through 1932. It was a self-guided tour through this fabulous exposition where we talked to proud owners about their treasured vehicles. We saw drivers engage in games of skill, saw a Model T assembled in just minutes, attended fascinating presentations, and enjoyed experts sharing “car talks” while vintage vehicles pass by. Greenfield Village is a 90 acre historic village that is considered the first and largest outdoor museum in America. Nearly 100 historical buildings were moved to the property from their original locations and arranged in a “village” setting. The museum shows how Americans lived and worked since the founding of the country. The Village includes buildings from the 17th century to the present, many of which are staffed by costumed interpreters who conduct period tasks like farming, sewing and cooking. A collection of craft buildings such as pottery, glass-blowing and tin shops provide demonstrations. The transportation system provides rides by horse-drawn omnibus, steam locomotive, a 1931 Model AA bus and authentic Ford Model Ts. Some of the most notable homes and buildings include: Henry Ford’s birthplace, Wright brothers’ home & bicycle shop and more. The Henry Ford Museum began as Henry Ford’s personal collections of historic objects which he began collecting as far back as 1906. Today, the 12 acre site is a collection of antique machinery, pop culture items, automobiles, locomotives, aircraft and other items such as the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated and the limousine in which John F. Kennedy was shot.
