On Aug. 20, travelers will get the opportunity to tour the 30,000-square-foot home of Edsel and Eleanor Ford in Grosse Pointe. This behind-the-scenes tour gives visitors a chance to see how the staff lived and worked “Downton Abbey” style. Travelers will enjoy the Grosse Pointe coastal area and see the historical St. Paul Cathedral, which dates back to 1790. Gossip of bygone days will be shared as the motorcoach passes other mansions in the most affluent suburban area of Metro Detroit. Some unique shopping stops will be made and lunch is included.

The motorcoach will leave the Durand Union Station at 8 a.m. and return by 5 p.m. The cost of the trip is $79 and payment is due by Aug. 1.

For more information, and to make reservations, persons may call (989) 288-3561 from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, or send payments to Durand Union Station, P.O. Box 106, Durand, MI 48429.
