Bringing Together

History and Community

Down on the Farm

The Barton Farmhouse is one of the area's few remaining examples of an early settlement home back when Bloomfield was primarily an agricultural community. Built in 1845 by James Darwin Benjamin, it sat on 122 acres of land near the intersection of modern day Long Lake Road and Eastways in Bloomfield Hills. 

Small Home, Big Heart

Another early family dwelling from the 1840s, the Craig Log Cabin has been meticulously restored to offer visitors and the community a closer look at early pioneer life in Southeast Michigan. In 1851 William Craig and his wife Sarah set up home here and raised 11 children.
