    These historic homes are stunning. I have passes through Michigan on a road trip once but next time I am there I’ll be sure to stop by these if they are in my way. So much to learn from them.

    The Edward E. Beals house appealed to me the most. Well, all of these houses are worth seeing in person. It would make me feel like I was transported back in time! I love the quietness of the surroundings. Something I have been craving for for so long!

    Love that Samuel Davis house. Not just the history, but the styling of it is wonderful!

    I just love the structure of the Edward Beals house. It just looks so cozy! I love looking at old homes and learning the history. We purchased a home 5 years ago and it turned 100 this past January. They just don’t build them like they use to.

    I love architecture from past generations! I grew up in a 1800s era house and have always had an appreciation for old houses.

  13. Liz says:

    I haven’t seen any of these except Glen Oaks – quite pretty. Glen Oaks is now a banquet hall, though – my swim team in high school would hold our yearly end of the season banquets there.

    I love to have my husband drive when we go places so I can look at all the pretty houses. Thanks for sharing – great list!
