Richmond Hill is not particularly eye catching, but it will become so if you stop in here and let 'Hub' give you the tour. The museum looks like a 15-min. experience from the outside, but if Hub is there plan on 2 hours...it's worth your time. The town's existence will keep Henry Ford on the tip of your tongue and...

It's true, our museum is housed in a former Kindergarten building that Henry Ford built in 1940. From the outside it appears to be small. I have had people pull into the parking lot and then just turn around and drive out! Fact is, we have seven rooms of displays supported by a narrated video and several kiosks. More

Saw an add for Richmond Hill in the Visit Savannah Guide. We found the exact location of this museum on tripadvisor. My husband and I pulled in at 2:45 pm. Tripadvisor said the museum closed at 3, so we were glad it said 4 pm close on the door. Hub gave us a personal tour of the museum complete with... More

We ran across this museum while visiting Savannah for the third time. I had read quite a bit about Henry Ford but didn't know anything about his winter home in Richmond Hill, only about his home in Florida. The museum was very well done and the tour guide was outstanding; very knowledgeable about the Ford's and the history of the... More

Next to Parker service station is a treat to all. Admission is $6 each and worth it. Housed in Georgia's first kindergarten this small museum contains a video presentation with a terrific docent, displays of early life, Indians, settlers, Civil war, Ford era. Ford developed and ran school system that included graded classes, homemaking, industrial school. Ford saved untold numbers... More

I didn't expect much from this small roadside museum, but I was so impressed! We recently moved to the area, so the museum was an excellent way to learn the history of the area. I knew that Henry Ford had a home here, but I didn't realize how intertwined he was with this community. If (when!) you go, be sure... More

Had a great tour guide and learned so much about the area and many things about Henry Ford I did not know. A great small museum, full of wonderful history.

We visited as part of an extra credit assignment for my son. We did not anticipate the wealth of knowledge that we were about to receive about Henry Ford's mission and vision for the city he built. Mr. Roy Hubbard was extremely knowledgable about the history of Richmond Hill. HIs passion and excitement shows in his sincere presentation. It almost... More
