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.

With so much done and so much left to explore, investigate and research, the Haven Hill Project Team is putting together the final details on what will be the first of three Book releases. The first book is due out very soon, followed by second Book focused more on the Mapping, GPS coordinates and Historical layout and placements in the Haven Hill historical area at Highland.

We could have rushed some of this, but wanted to straddle the book releases, so that the focus on each book would be certain aspects of the historical and natural areas at Haven Hill. We thought it easier to follow what will be in each release, rather then a giant volume of everything at once. Plus there will be ongoing research that is getting deeper and deeper as we go.

In a way, each of the Books will be separate volumes of the Master book: The Haven Hill Project.

The research continues in a number of places around the Haven Hill area and the finishing touches on the trails outside the preserve. Most of Highland recreation area has now been completely GPSed and detailed out.

Many new discoveries have been made while we have been GPSing and mapping the park and Haven Hill. The Spring has been most revealing. The Ford Nature Trails have many secrets, and the Estate extended further then most people have considered. The extensive construction, small structures, water channeling, stone walls and details through out the Haven Hill Estate proper and beyond, boggles the imagination at time.

Check out the latest FLICKR photos for some of our recent trips to the park. Some of the very best is still to come.
