Dodge Brothers: Detroit's Automotive Geniuses

@ Meadow Brook Hall, 350 Estate Drive, Rochester, MI 48309
In 1908, John Dodge purchased a 320-acre farm in Rochester, Michigan that would grow into a sprawling country estate with the 110-room Meadow Brook Hall as its centerpiece. The difficulty their cars faced on the sprawling hills and rough dirt roads encouraged John and his brother Horace to stop supplying car parts to Ford Motor Company and instead launch a car able to face any rough terrain- the “dependable Dodge.” Learn more about John and Horace’s rise to success in the Motor City with Meadow Brook Hall Director of Curatorial Services Madelyn Rzadkowolski.

Powerful Lake Erie wave photos show the wilder side of our Great Lake

Metro Detroiters might think the waves on Lake Erie small and relatively unnoteworthy. On windy days, choppy waters draw the occasional surfer…

By Vince Grzegorek

“It was during an intense wind storm in the fall of 2014 that I first witnessed the powerful waves Lake Erie can generate. Lake Erie is the shallowest and the warmest of the five Great Lakes. And the waves I capture on this lake are generally two-fold. There are the main lake waves, which are generated from strong winds that whip up the water, and there are secondary waves that are created when these waves crash into barriers near the shoreline.”
