There’s really no place else like Greenfield Village anywhere in the country and it continues to offer families a unique way to share American history together. Long before historic re-enactments became popular, Henry Ford had his own vision of how future generations would come to understand the American experience. He chose Dearborn, Mich., just outside of Detroit, where he moved historic buildings to the site, which opened in 1933.
