A Visit To Meadow Brook Hall

Tonight we are going to visit one of America's Castles. Meadow Brook Hall is located on the property of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. They open the house every year for their main fundraiser, a Holiday Walk.
Here is a closer picture of the enterance.
The picture above is of the Banquet Hall.
Here is the fireplace in the Main Hall beautifully decorated for the Holiday Walk.
This is the living room fireplace.
I love the paneling in Mrs. Wilson's Study
Meadow Brook Hall is a place for the community and its visitors to be entertained, educated and inspired by history. As Meadow Brook Hall is fully self-funded, it relies on events such as the annual Holiday Walk for its preservation and interpretation.

You can read about the history of this interesting house and view more pictures at the link below.
