Back to Meadow Brook

Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, Michigan

Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, Michigan

It had been eight years since I’d been to Meadow Brook Hall, the 88,000 square foot mansion built in the late 1920s by Matilda Dodge Wilson (widow of John Dodge – as in Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, etc.).

As soon as I walked in, fond memories of galas & good times came to mind. Flapper dresses, secret staircases, black & white movies in the ballroom…

They say you can’t go back, but I think it’s ok to visit now and then and appreciate the past, whether it be your own or that of a wealthy automotive family you’re of no relation to.
