Why Sharleen Schumacher chose Eastern Michigan

This home has had a colorful past. It was once home to the 2nd wife of auto magnate Horace Dodge. She stayed on after the divorce and became personal sec'y to the last Mrs. Dodge, Matilda Dodge Wilson of Meadowbrook Hall & Oakland University.

This house also served as a hideout for Detroit's infamous Purple Gang. Another resident for a short time was author John Steinbeck.

What makes this house unique

PEACE & QUIET! Awaken to the birds chirping, no fire or police sirens. Enjoy sitting on the porches and watching hummingbirds get nectar from the flowers of nearby feeding station.
