The Friends of Highland Recreation Area are transforming the original Haven Hill Gatehouse into a new visitor center for the park, and we need your help.
On Wednesday, December 12, at 7:00 pm we’ll be holding an informal public idea session at the Gatehouse. We’ll start off with a quick tour, discuss the list of ideas already submitted, then open the floor to all other ideas.
The Gatehouse, located across from the park office at the main entrance on M-59, was originally built by Edsel and Eleanor Ford as part of their Haven Hill estate. Guests of Haven Hill would stop at the Gatehouse as the first part of any visit to what would later become Highland State Recreation Area. We’re working on returning the Gatehouse to this role, making it the first stop for park visitors to learn more about all the great natural, historic, and recreational resources available in the park.
Here’s where we need your help. We want to make this visitor center the best it can be, which means we need your ideas.
Please join us at the Haven Hill Gatehouse and help make our new visitor center the best it can be.
