Ward Eagle Home
This 1841 Greek revival farmhouse was the home of Ward Eagle (1891-1967), Farmington Township Supervisor, Justice of the Peace and influential member of the Michigan Milk Producers Association.
The house was built by John Trick on land sold out of the original Samuel Bryan farm.
The cobblestone building, once a blacksmith shop for re-shoeing horses and repairing farm implements in pre-automotive days, have been restored, as has the house, now serving twentieth century tenants.
Erected 1990 by Farmington Hills Historical Commission.
