Built in the 1830s, it is nearly as old as the City of Ann Arbor. About thirty years ago, Ann Arbor purchased the farm and, with the help of the Cobblestone Farm Association, ensures ongoing restoration and maintenance. Today, on its beautifully maintained grounds, the association hosts seasonal programs, weddings and other celebratory events. Families often come to spend the day.
Though Cobblestone Farm is enjoyed by many, there are still countless others who drive by the quaint stone farmhouse on Packard Road oblivious of its past. And, for those who do come, how many stop to think that within the walls of this historic home are the memories of the Ticknor, Booth and Campbell families. Real people, real families and a home filled with their love, laughter, sadness and tragedies.
How strong are the energies of these families and is it possible their spirits remain? For some time there have been reports of unusual phenomena at the home. The vision of a woman was seen looking out from an upper floor window. Other reports include the apparition of a man seated in the dining room and another of a little boy who supposedly drowned in the well on the home’s property. We hoped to find out if any of these reports were true during our investigation.
