Hiking Michigan will be assisting us in a very special Tour of the Ford estate and the Natural area surrounding the Estate shortly. This extra special tour will be by reservations only, in order to hold the number of hikers to less then 20.

We are holding this special Hike/Your to celebrate the release of both our “Guide Booklet” and hardcover book called simply, “HAVEN HILL”. We wanted this special Tour to be able to visit and examine some of the special and little know places through out the Estate. Something we could not accomplish with the groupd of 75 people we have been getting at past HISTORY HIKES.

Stay tuned of more details and announcement on a first come first serve reservation for this very special Tour. You will simply be bowled over at what you will see and explore with this small group on this unique and extra special Hike/Tour.

So stay tuned for details and be the first of 20 people attending this Tour.

We have been overwhelmed with emails and suggestions and comments about not only our recent History Hike, but the Haven Hill project study group as well. probably the most suggested item after our recent Hike is that the Haven Hill Project should become a 501(c)3 Non-Profit group, so that we all can assist in protecting the historical and natural places at Highland recreation area.

As people are becoming aware of not only the History, but the Natural aspects of the Haven Hill area, the more they want it all protected. Most people have expressed a want to keeping the area as natural as possible. Not turning the whole place into a circus for money. We agree with this completely! The area should be studied, shown to the public and protected in as many different ways as possible. No one is interested in facsimiles of what once was there. Not even the Ford family is interested in that. This is very clear in the huge response we have received from the 1st History Hike.

The Haven Hill Project is now looking at some possible avenues in assisting the people of the state of Michigan preserve and protect their history and Parks. We will keep you all posted. And thanks for the great support for the cause.

For a short review of our wonderful afternoon at Highland Recreation are, in White Lake Twp., we put a short video together. Nothing special, but it shows what fun we all had while learning some things about the Ford Estate history and Oakland county history. All while having the sun shine down on a beautiful Winter afternoon on the snow covered hills in Southeastern Michigan. Truly doesn’t get to much better then this.

Join us in the Spring for our 2nd in the series of HISTORY HIKES at Haven Hill, when the snow has gone and the fine point details of all that remains at Haven Hill is better reveled to everyone. See you all there on the Hill.
