Celebrities Come to Visit

They came from around the world.
In the early 1920s, "weekend jaunts" in automobiles and on new roads brought day travelers to this countryside like never before, and also brought prominent people from around the world. The world of Edsel Ford included relationships with many leaders and explorers of the era and he invited them to his wooded hilltop refuge. These visitors included his father, Henry Ford, legendary inventor Thomas Edison, aviation explorers Charles Lindbergh and Admiral Richard Byrd, the Prince of Wales, Tarzan author Edgar Rice Burroughs, and movie actor Jackie Cooper.

You Auto Know
In 1923, local people gathered along Highland Road to glimpse the visit by British royal visitor, the Prince of Wales.
