In the southern part of Alberta, the former mansion of Henry Ford is back on track

In Canada, the green province of Alberta shelters the Kettle Lakes Ranch, former homestead of automobile magnate, Henry Ford.

Close to the frontier with the United-States, the Canadian province of Alberta was a very practical place to live during the restricting laws of prohibition, in 1929. This is when Henry Ford, founder of a revolutionary automobile enterprise, built the Kettle Lakes Ranch. On the edge of a beautiful lake, this former family property is located close to the city of Calgary.

On the traces of Henry Ford, in Canadian Alberta

Built on a forest estate of 100 hectares, it offers an exclusive panorama nestled at the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains. This historic landmark, named Fordville Estates, is considered as the most expensive property in the country. One gains access to the house by a private road and a covered bridge.
