The plaque above:



In 1929, Henry Ford created Greenfield Village. Guided by the philosophy of "learning by doing." Ford not only paid tribute to his friend and hero, Thomas Edison, but also gave Americans a chance to experience history firsthand. His vision was realized by relocating and preserving an unrivaled collection of authentic historic buildings into an American Village.
Today, Greenfield Village embodies the spirit of Henry Ford's bold vision. Farmers, artisans, inventors, writers, shopkeepers and railroad workers carry out their daily tasks throughout this changing landscape. The energy is unmistakable as their powerful and inspiring stories bring 300 years of the American experience to life every day.
