Meadow Brook Hall

For those not familiar with Meadow Brook Hall, the following text is taken from their web site and gives some history of the building.

"Meadow Brook Hall is the fourth largest historic house museum in the United States and is especially renowned for its superb craftsmanship, architectural detailing and grand scale. Built between 1926 and 1929 as the residence of Matilda Dodge Wilson (widow of auto pioneer John Dodge) and her second husband, lumber broker Alfred G. Wilson, the 110-room, 88,000-square-foot, Tudor-revival style mansion is complete with vast collections of original art and furnishings.

In 1957, the Wilsons left their residence and its collections along with the estate’s 1,500 acres and $2 million to found what has become Oakland University.

Listed on both the national and state registers of historical places, Meadow Brook Hall strives to preserve and interpret its architecture, landscape, and fine and decorative art so visitors may be entertained, educated and inspired by history."

Cameras are not permitted inside the mansion but visitors are welcome to take photos of the grounds.
