About the Ford Orientation Center

The Ford Orientation Center gives visitors an overview of the Mount Vernon experience.

The Ford Orientation Center opened its doors in 2006 thanks to the generosity of the Ford Motor Company Fund. Mount Vernon’s partnership with the Ford Motor Company started long before the construction of this building. In 1923, Henry Ford purchased and donated Mount Vernon’s first fire truck. To this day, the Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company Fund continue to provide funding for new programs and educational outreach initiatives throughout the Estate.
