Traveling Tuesday - Just a House in Michigan
When I visit foreign countries, I am often touring palaces. When I travel in the United States, I am more likely to be touring beautiful homes. Here are just a few I have visited in Michigan.
Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, Grosse Pointe Shores, front and back (below).
The date on the photo is significant. I was driving back from a trip to Pennsylvania to visit Fallingwater and had stopped at the Ford home on my way back. As I neared my town at about 4:15 the traffic backed up. I saw that the traffic lights were not working. When I saw people coming out of their businesses, I knew it was more than just the traffic lights. Where were you the day all the lights went out? August 13, 2003.
Jacob Reuter Estate, now The English Inn and restaurant, Eaton Rapids. Somewhere in my mass of prints I have interior pictures. Transferring all those photos to digital is something I don't even want to think about tackling.

Do you visit homes in the USA when you travel? Are there homes you wish you could visit?
