Meadow Brook Hall

Last Thursday hubby and I and his cousin went to take a looked at one of the most famous mansion here in Michigan. This mansion is situated in the middle of Oakland University. The story is that the Dodge family donated this property to the school and it's more than a thousand of acres. I went outside to get a tour schedule and inside they don't allow camera ^_^. But I was able to take a picture outside of the mansion. By the way, I was not able to take  a picture of the garage area and it's huge too. Here take a look!
             As we are approaching the place, we are at the driveway this is the right side of the mansion

        The left side of the mansion, didn't took a photo of the garage side which is a continuation of this mansion because I was so excited and overwhelmed of the size of this house...errr mansion!!



                      I so wish I did took a photo of the door, it's like I am in the middle age era.
                              I am linking this post to Outdoor Wednesday and ABC Wednesday

It is hard to believe people used to live like that-- and they weren't even rock stars or athletes!

Wouldn't want to be the one that had to keep that mansion clean! Impressive building.

It's amazing to think that someone lived in that big of a place...

Donnie said...

That is just amazing. The rooms must have been huge.

What a wonderful, enormous place! It reminds me of some of the "stately homes" I've visited on trips to England. Too bad you weren't able to get any indoor shots!

Happy Wednesday, and have a great week!

Wow....what an incredible place to visit. Can you imagine living in such a vast environment? And to donate the mansion AND the acreage, that in my mind, is awesome!!

I enjoyed the outdoor tour.
Thanks for visiting with me yesterday. Your company is always appreciated.
