Insider's Tour: Detroit Central Market at The Henry Ford

Join us for an exclusive look at a storied piece of Jewish history. This 1860 vegetable shed was once part of Detroit's Central Market, before being rescued by The Henry Ford. Now, it makes its debut at Greenfield Village! Curator of Agriculture and the Environment Debra Reid gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the shed and its architect, Dankmar Adler. The tour begins with remarks at 2pm at The Henry Ford's Benson Ford Research Center, followed by a visit to the shed in Greenfield Village. Scooters and wheelchairs will be available.

Please register by Wednesday, May 18.  Ticket prices include FREE admission to Greenfield Village. Registration is capped at 30 participants. Attendees are welcome to stay in Greenfield Village after the program concludes at 4pm until closing. No refunds unless the program is canceled.  Event chair: Elayne Gross
