The Collection

The Benson Ford Research Center allows you to personally access archives, records and collections that document the American Experience. If you are visiting the area, come to our public reading room, where you can read historic documents, rare books, and a wealth of other materials. If you can't visit in person, you can still take advantage of our collections web pages, which allow you to browse through examples from the rich collections of The Henry Ford. Also check out our selection of images online and our online library catalog.
