Meadowbrook Hall is a significant part of Detroit's automotive heritage. Built by Matilda Dodge (of the Dodge automotive family) this mansion is a cultural and architectural jewel nestled within hundreds of acres of land as part of the Oakland University campus 30 miles north of Detroit in Rochester MI. Come anytime for an architectural tour or even better come during the holidays for a festive display of Christmas ornamentation. Same historical significance as Greenfield Village if on a much smaller scale.

The Hall is an amazing place. The craftsmanship is just beautiful and the Christopher Wren dining room is a treat. The food was also excellent. This was for a business meeting and the staff was very attentive.

The fourth largest mansion in the U.S., is a must see. Go early before the big groups come, expecially on the discount ticket senior days. Christmas can be busy. There are speciality tours listed on the website and discount coupon s available on the internet. Look before you go. The ticket price without is at $20 each. No photos inside which is disappointing.

We have been to the holiday lights tour and a couple of weddings. The mansion and grounds are incredible. It is really cool to see how the rich used to live back in the day. The hokiday lights tour is a lot of fun and really puts you in the christmas spirit.
