Haven Hill Redbud Reveal Season Opening Event to Feature Brick Paver Fundraiser and Antiques and Collectibles Sale

Saturday, May 6, 10 am until 3:00 pm

The season opening “Redbud Reveal” event is this Saturday May 6 at Haven Hill in Highland State Recreation Area. Come out and enjoy the historic Haven Hill structures in a beautiful Spring setting. And it’s perfect timing – the redbud trees are in bloom!

Also enjoy an Antiques and Collectibles Sale fundraiser at the Edsel Ford barn. During the sale, see the developments that the Friends of Highland Recreation Area volunteers have completed to rebuild this historic structure - and take home a few items for your home, family, and friends. All sale proceeds benefit the friends group and their efforts at the state park.

This year’s event day will feature a special fundraiser at Edsel and Eleanor Ford’s former Haven Hill Gate House. A Brick Pavers sale will allow you to donate to the friends group and place a permanent brick paver on the historic Gate House grounds in memory of your love ones or special pets. The pavers will be installed later this year, and you will be able to enjoy them forever on the beautiful grounds of Edsel and Eleanor Fords’ former Haven Hill Gate House. A display table with brochures and information, as well as friends group volunteers, will be there to answer questions during the event on Saturday.

Visit the website at www.fohravolunteers.org for more information. See you Saturday at the Park!

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.
