- Meadow Brook is the historic home built by one of the automotive aristocracy's most remarkable women, Matilda Dodge Wilson, widow of automobile pioneer John Dodge, and her second husband, lumber broker Alfred Wilson. Constructed between 1926 and 1929, for $4 million, the 88,000 square feet Meadow Brook represents one of the finest examples of Tudor-revival architecture in America. The home has 39 chimneys and is elaborately crafted with hand-carved wood, ceramic art tile, molded ceilings and ornate fixtures. In the Hall is an extensive collection of lavish paintings, sculptures, furniture and other art objects. Meadow Brook Hall is a cultural center, offering guided tours and special exhibitions, as well as serving as a unique setting for weddings, corporate gatherings, and parties.
