The Henry Ford

The Swiss Chalet structure was built in 1935 in Greenfield Village as a watchmaker's workshop where fine watches and clocks were made and repaired. The building is currently used for staff purposes. Henry Ford was fascinated with the craft of watchmaking and tinkered with timepieces throughout his life; he saw this building as a way to share his interest with the public.
