The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm is surrounded by 16 acres of rolling park grounds located in Stoney Creek Village. We will experience a guided tour of the Farmhouse, Red House and the Dairy Barn all of which originally belonged to the Taylor and Van Hoosen families dating back to 1823. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Van Hoosen Farmhouse allows you to experience the glory of the past with a fascinating trip back in time. The City of Rochester Hills received the Red House as a gift from Michigan State University in December 1996. Since then, the building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, has had a complete restoration, and is furnished with period furnishings of the late 1800s. The 1927 Van Hoosen Dairy Barn is the largest and most important building remaining on the Van Hoosen Farm. Built by Dr. Sarah Van Hoosen Jones in 1927. The building housed Dr. Jones’ entire dairy processing operation. This included milking, bottling, and the making of butter and ice cream. Enjoy permanent exhibits that enhance understanding of the past, collected and preserved, on the rich history of the greater Rochester area.
