The Cobblestone Farm offers a peek into the 19th century of the Ticknor family and share their stories, lives and even their lifestyle with visitors. The farm includes the Dr. Benajah Ticknor House which is a historical monument and is registered as a National Register of Historic Places and a Michigan State Historic Site.
The farm, named after the cobblestone used to build the house, dates back to 1824 and was an operating farm right till the 20thcentury. In 1835, Ezra Maynard sold the property to Heman Ticknor who bought it on behalf of Dr. Benajah Ticknor who was a navy surgeon. Ticknoor died in 1858, leaving behind his wife and adopted children and his medical library was donated to the University of Michigan. Take a glimpse into the world of the family and you are transported back in time. The Classical Revival style of architecture with side-gabled roof arranged in herringbone patterns, the Doric elements, the fireplace that would be used to bake and heat water, and the surrounding farmlands, tool shed and smokehouse still remain untouched and make a visit here, literally, a walk in history. Do keep an eye out for special programs arranged at the farm.

Cobblestone Farm Reviews & Ratings
We were there for my daughter's best friends wedding and it was perfect! Everything was clean and we had a great time the staff stayed on top of things as needed, like he stocked the ladies room when it ran out of tp and was very nice to me when I asked him if he could. Thanks so much!
Beautiful site for any occasion. Was there for a memorial service of a lost friend. We like it a lot and host several occasions a year there.
Amazing how beautiful this place is. My cousin had his wedding here last Thursday. Such a beautiful wedding.
It is a beautiful place. I am a wedding / event photographer and I have done several event at the Farm. By far one of my favorite spots in town. The place is just beautiful. It is perfect for an intimate events as well as a bigger one. It has something magical. The staff is on top of everything, courteous and always available. All the clients I have work with only have positive comments about here experience at the farm. The small fenced area with the farm animals is a joy for any toddlers and kids. It is one of our favorite -all year- stops with my daughters for our daily walk.
The barn is a beautiful place for a wedding, however , my daughters wedding was a week ago and a storm knocked out the power at Cobblestone. They had no backup generator. Things did not go well after that. They have not yet contacted us about it. They said we would be compensated for any inconveniences. It was very sad to have such a beautiful wedding end without power. We picked this barn mainly because it had air conditioning. I’ve had to contact them twice about it and still no response. I would not suggest this barn for a wedding because they do not seem to be prepared for emergencies.
