Museum Musings is an ongoing biweekly program that takes place on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and provides in-depth information on a specific topic pertaining to our site. Henry Ford’s estate was called “The Mangoes”, named after the row of mango trees that lined the pathway leading up to his home. In this talk, Curatorial Assistant Tayelor Kakes will discuss the history of mangoes in the United States and highlight the different varieties that you can find throughout the Edison and Ford Winter Estates property. This program is free for Edison Ford members and included with admission for non-members.
