Former home of Michigan governor Fred Warner (1905-1911) the Governor Warner Museum is a Victorian Italianate structure built in 1867 by P. D. Warner, the Governor's father, and is furnished in late Victorian style. The Museum is filled with historic artifacts and memorabilia from 1850 through 1920. Sitting on almost three acres, the house is surrounded by gardens lovingly tended by the Museum Garden auxiliary.
The Museum is open from March through December on Wednesdays and the first Sunday or each month from 1-5pm. The grounds are available to rent for your special events such as weddings, self-catered porch lunches, etc. The grounds are also available for family photos. Tours are available at $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.
The Museum always needs volunteers to help with these and many other activities. Please call 248-474-5500 ext. 2225 for information.
