Meadow Brook Hall


John Dodge's wealth bought him an enormous $4 million dollar mansion with 110 rooms, 24 fireplaces, and 39 chimneys on top. Unfortunately, he didn't live to see it built. His widow and her second husband had Meadow Brook Hall completed in 1929. Then they had the area's first all-electric home, Knole Cottage, built nearby. It's a 3/4-scale "playhouse" intended for their 12-year-old daughter. You can see the cottage and the mansion with its original artwork and luxurious appointments for the admission price of $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+), and free for children 12 and under. They stand on the campus of Oakland University near the intersection of Walton Boulevard and Adams Road.
