Photo 146-TWA-21


This is the farm my great uncle rented. He had a produce stand a grew lots of pumpkins.

This farm sat on the southeast corner of Ridge and Ford Roads for over 75 years until it was razed around 1990. The corner where the farm once stood is technically still empty, but the Vintage Valley subdivision development was built in 2000 and spans the corner section from Ford on the north to Saltz on the south (the entire area of fields behind this farm). This area has been significantly developed in the last 40 years, both Ford and Ridge are now paved and there is a traffic light at the intersection. The Park West Apartment complex was built in the field opposite the farm across Ford Road and opened in 2019.

Approximately 49651 Ford Rd, Canton, MI 48187

My grandparents sold the property to the developers who developed Vintage Valley. It definitely has changed a lot.
