About Meadow Brook Hall
Matilda Dodge Wilson, widow of automobile pioneer John Dodge, once said that "Knowledge of the past helps people face the challenges of the future." And in the late 50s, she and her second husband made a grand gesture in the name of knowledge: they donated two million dollars, their estate's 1,500 acres, and their mansion to found the campus for Michigan State University, now Oakland University. The mansion, Meadow Brook Hall, preserves Wilson's legacy through its gorgeous setting and decor, including original artwork, antiques, and Tiffany stained glass. As a National Historic Landmark and constructed between 1926 and 1929, Meadow Brook Hall represents one of the finest examples of Tudor-revival style architecture in America, and is especially renowned for its superb craftsmanship, architectural detailing and grand scale of 88,000 square-feet.
