Haven Hill Festival - August 29, 2015

The Haven Hill Festival, a celebration of Edsel and Eleanor Fords’ historic Haven Hill Estate and the Highland State Recreation Area, will be held on Saturday, August 29, 2015. Parking is at the Goose Meadow picnic shelter area, the 1st right turn on Haven Hill Road after you enter the park off of M-59 between Duck Lake and Bogie Lake roads. Bring picnic blankets, sun umbrellas, and folding chairs to stay and watch the Old Fashioned Base Ball game! Food will be available for purchase as a fund raiser for the Friends of Highland Recreation Area. The Friends of Highland Recreation Area (FOHRA), is a non-profit organization supporting the Highland State Recreation Area in Highland/White Lake, Michigan, and the historic Edsel Ford Haven Hill Estate structures within its boundaries.

The Friends of Highland Recreation Area (FOHRA) volunteer organization was established in 2007, and is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization operating under lease agreement with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Within one of the most picturesque, fascinating, and historically significant state parks in southeast lower Michigan, our goal is to combine the former Haven Hill estate history with Highland Recreation Area’s existing amenities, wilderness, and recreation.
