Ann Arbor's city parks sit on the ancestral and traditional homelands​ of several indigenous Native peoples. Read a land acknowledgement​​ from the city and learn more a​bout the early history of the land here.​​

The land​ that is now Stone School Park was acquired by the City of Ann Arbor in 1991. It was purchased from the Worden family who also owned the adjoining homestead on the north side of the park. This entire estate and many of the surrounding areas were once part of the Ticknor Farm. Part of the Ticknor estate and the old farmhouse on it has been preserved as Cobblestone Farm.
