Anytime is a good time to head out to Haven Hill at Highland Recreation area. Besides the old Edsel Ford estate there, the State designated Natural area is a special place year round. As the snows melt, it is an excellent opportunity to investigate the remaimns of the estate.

We have been very busy getting all the work done on the HAVEN HILL book and a few other things that will be available along with the book release in the next few weeks now.

We will be releasing some waterproof trail maps of the Estate and Haven Hill Natural area, as well as an 11×17″ map of the entire Haven Hill Estate, the way it was in 1930 after most of it was completed. This map shows all the building locations, fences, rock walls, estate roads & ponds and horse and hiking trails. A great way to explore and discover at Haven Hill.

Slowly now, we have been doing renderings of all the structures at the Haven Hill Estate, the way they where in their hey-day.

The Pool and Tennis courts are next.

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.
