The Cobblestone Farm house, completed in 1845, was originally a two-family home. Benajah Ticknor, a U.S. Naval surgeon, and Heman Ticknor, whig politician and farmer, shared occupancy of this classic revival structure with their families. Being restored and interpreted to reflect its mid-nineteenth century appearance, the site provides a view of past rural life in Washtenaw County. Today the site is administered through Parks and Recreation Services with support from the Cobblestone Farm Association.

(Updated March 7, 2021) At this time Cobblestone Farm has suspended booking new events for 2021 and 2022. We are reviewing State, County and City executive orders, fees and policies on how to safely host events in the future. We hope to complete this review by late May/early June 2021 at which point we will update our websites.
If you have questions about an event you have already scheduled at Cobblestone Farm in 2021 or 2022, please send staff an email as we are continuing to work from home through March 31, 2021 (or longer). [email protected].
