According to MLive,

The Boston-Edison district, a historic neighborhood in the center of Detroit, attracted the city's wealthy and most influential automotive and business leaders in the early twentieth century.

In addition to the Fords, the neighborhood was also home to four of the seven Fisher brothers (of the Fisher Body Company) and leaders of Packard, Cadillac, and General Motors.

The Fords' Boston-Edison home is now on its fourth set of owners, who, according to the listing, are "true historians and archivists".
