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.

The Birthplace/Monument was very informative and has great potential. However, the place needs to be taken care of better.

We visited on a rainy day. Informative and nice small rose garden. I had thought there was a home/birth site to tour. We just walked around the grounds.
