The Lodge's “Little Brother”

It was a garage and a playhouse.
The Carriage House was planned to be the chauffeur's home and to shelter Ford family vehicles. But the chauffeur moved into the Lodge, and the Carriage House became a playhouse for the Ford children — Henry II, Benson, Josephine, and William Clay. Self-sufficiency was important at the estate, as it was in Ford's automobile factories. Building logs came from the same northern Michigan timber holdings used for early Ford vehicle bodies. Model T parts were used in pulling logs up the hill and in a backup power generation system near the Carriage House.

You Auto Know
The electrical power system at Haven Hill was placed underground to maintain the natural appearance throughout the estate.
