While putting the finishing touches on the Book release for December 1st, we created some drawings of what the Lodge looked like before it was burned away in 1999. Just thought you all would like a look at one of the renderings.

The view is of the Lodge’s north side, with the beautiful Veranda that overlooked Haven Hill lake in the distance before the years of tree growth.

Finally…….after a number of re-edits, re-formatting and updates, we are in our final draft to the Printers for our first book entitled simply, “HAVEN HILL”, The study of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford estate at Haven Hill. It is what we think are the basics of our almost 2 years of research at Haven Hill, the Edsel Ford estate at Highland recreation area.

It has been a long road to this point, and we have left much out of this first Book. but we thought it was time to get the basics and some details, as a foundation to further Book releases on this subject.

The Book should be out in December, followed by a matching Video of the same name. “HAVEN HILL”. The Video will have the latest detailed photos, short Video clips and many details and descriptions of our research and the Haven Hill estate. Also as part of these two releases, will be new details Maps of the Park, Historical maps, detailed maps of just the way the estate was, when the Ford family was living there, and a couple of detailed drawings of the Lodge and other estate features.

We will post an official availability date as soon as our Publisher lets us know. We are very excited about getting our research and hard work published and shown to the public. There is so very little out there on the Edsel Ford estate, and the Book and Video should fill in many gaps on the available information on Haven Hill and even the Natural area that surrounds the estate.

Look for official release dates on the Book and accompanying Video very shortly.

A wonderful day of hiking, history and Fall colors. Very impressive that over 70 people showed up to take in some of the areas history. Many great questions and some very interesting suggestions to the many unanswered questions surrounding the Ford estate on Haven Hill.

Most people told us how little information there is on-line concerning the Ford estate. We believe that Edsel & Eleanor Ford wanted their Home at Haven Hill to be private. Their Gaukler Pointe home in Grosse Pointe Shores is open for public tours, and there is much information available to the public.

There where many discussions on the Hike about this lack of information about the Haven Hill estate. We tried to share what we have learned about the estate, and there where many suggestions at why this magnificent estate and ground where kept quite through all these years. Some great conversations on this subject.

What was suppose to be a three hour Hike, turned into a 5 hour hike and exploration. This alone said alot about the interest in the many hidden historical aspects at Haven Hill.

The Haven Hill Project was very happy to share our studies over the last two years with all of you that came out for the History Hike. We hope it sparked some further interest in the history at Haven Hill and that everyone had just a nice time exploring and discovering the hidden historical treasures at Haven Hill in Highland Recreation Area.
