Preservation Bloomfield is a non-profit, all-volunteer community organization formed to preserve and protect two historically-relevant homes in Bloomfield, Michigan.

Homes Worth Saving

These modest mid-1800's family homes are examples of early architecture by settlers in Bloomfield. They were separately relocated to the Charles L. Bowers School Farm in 2008. This idyllic setting on public school property and working farm is nestled in the heart of Oakland County convenient to I-75.

A Community Effort

Preservation Bloomfield is a collaboration of the Bloomfield Historical Society, Bloomfield Hills Schools, Charter Township of Bloomfield, and the City of Bloomfield Hills. It is our hope that the preservation of the Farmhouse and Cabin, along with the educational programs provided by the Bloomfield Hills schools, will help future generations remember and appreciate the lives of the Metro Detroit's early colonial settlers. 

Bloomfield Historical Society

Fosters an appreciation of Bloomfield area history by identifying and promoting our heritage. The society engages people from all generations and hosts educational events for the community.

Bloomfield Hills Schools

Offers a progressive curriculum in a multitude of unique learning environments, including Charles L. Bowers School Farm, which is the location of the Barton Farmhouse and Craig Log Cabin.

Charter Township of Bloomfield

A residential community with a long history, and consisting of nearly 26 square miles of rolling hills, winding roads, scenic lakes and streams.

City of Bloomfield Hills
