The Sheldon Estate Ruins

These pictures are of the ruins of the Sheldon Estate. The estate was one of many pieces of land that was donated to create Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby Twp. MI. The park has torn down all of the houses and structures and even dug up the foundations except for this one. There was a long hunt for a chimney that is no longer there and we were walking around looking for this house forever. I found out later that we were walking right over it, but you couldn't see the foundations because of the snow. I am going to have to go back in the spring. Enjoy.

The steps leading up to what was the house.

The steps to the house again.

The steps going from the tennis courts to the main drive.

I didn't know it at the time, but these are the tennis courts. I am going to have to get a better picture in the spring.

The pine garden behind the tennis courts. The bench is actually a $5,000 alter that someone brought in for a wedding in the park last year, but it was too heavy to move so they left it.
