Under the Mighty Oak Tree - MyWorld Tuesday

If only this beautiful oak tree could talk! You must drive past this mighty oak tree and continue down the long country lane to reach your destination. This would appear to be an ordinary house - but the local old timers know it's story. Just ask one of them about it and be prepared to listen to the stories.

It seems that this was the "summer" home of Henry Ford. He owned a large tract of land in this area and this was the house where he stayed overnight, entertained his friends and got to know the local folks. Mr. Ford's presence had a great impact on the local community, but that's for another day. I hope you enjoy the "summer home" in the winter.

  7. I love trees that have long branches, writhing like this!! The only reason for them to drop their leaves in the fall, is so I can admire the branches all winter!
