Large beautiful farm house. The tour is interesting and very enjoyable. The main barn is admirable. Not the run of the mill design. Stone walls and silos are interesting. Watch for lectures and interesting films. The farm is a great Rochester Hills asset.

Learn how some of the early settlers were influential in early Michigan. The house is a must visit at Christmas. The barn is also quite interesting with its artifacts from early Michigan farming.
