We will visit and take a one-and-a-half-hour docent-led tour of Kirk in the Hills, the dream and vision of Colonel Edwin S.George. Colonel George, a Detroit businessman, gifted his home and estate (Cedarholm) in 1947, intending the Kirk to be a community church serving the area. View the Pewabic ceramic tile, Marshall Fredrick’s sculptures, and the tower which houses one of the world’s largest carillon with 77 bells. The Gothic design church was patterned after the once famous 13th century Melrose Abbey in Scotland, and is one of the last truly Gothic structures built in America.
