Meadow Brook Hall has been featured in a prominent national news article as among the 11 largest historic homes in the country–and the only in the Midwest.
A National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook Hall is a museum, cultural center and wedding and events venue. Built in 1929, Meadow Brook represents one of the finest examples of Tudor-revival architecture in America, and is especially renowned for its superb craftsmanship, architectural detailing and grand scale.
From exquisite décor to practical details, the 88,000-square foot, 110-room mansion is open to the public for tours throughout the year.
America’s 11 largest historic homes and what the estates look like today
Wealthy tycoons built some of the largest and most opulent historic houses of 50,000 square feet or larger in America, most of which are no longer used as private homes but have been adapted for reuse.
The sprawling estates, all built before 1950, now serve as research labs, country clubs, museums and educational centers — whether through endowment or outright purchase. Some remain in private hands while others are now publicly owned.
The homes are primarily located along the East coast, with the exception of Meadow Brook Hall in Michigan. Equipped with ballrooms, live-in quarters for staff and impressive square footage, these homes look straight out of a Clue game board.
