Farmington Hills in Oakland County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Pettibone House
This beautifully restored Gothic Revival farmhouse is representative of homes built by well-to-do pioneer Farmingtonians.
Migrating from Manchester, Bennington County, Vermont, in 1841, Levi and Huldah Pettibone homesteaded the surrounding farmland.
The home was built around an original house in 1867 by Judson P. Pettibone, brother of Levi, who came in 1845. The front section was added in 1880 by John P. Pettibone, who had come to Farmington with his father, Levi, at the age of 10. He was a farmer, grain and fruit raiser and dairyman.
The Pettibones are buried in the family plot in West Farmington Cemetery, one-half mile west of here.
