The picture above is of one of the slave quarters.
Before the Village, is the Henry Ford Museum. This museum 'documents' our American culture through the years. There are so many interesting things to see! Some of the favorites among visitors: This is the chair Lincoln was sitting in at the Ford theater when he was killed by John Wilkes Booth. There is a darkening at the top of the chair that is a combination of Lincolns hair tonic and blood from the bullet wound. The chair is now encased in glass.
This is the limousine that President Kennedy rode in on that fateful day in November in Dallas. For years the back windows had been 'fogged' so you couldn't see into the vehicle. They cleared the windows a couple years ago. You can't help but stand there and cry as they play the video of that day.
This is another view of the limo.
This is the bus Rosa Parks rode in when she refused to give up her seat. It was donated to the museum two years ago. They completely restored the bus back to it's original state at the time she made that wonderful decision to stand her ground. Go Rosa!This is the original McDonald's neon sign from their first 'golden arches' restaurant. It's huge in person!
