Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (February 25, 2010)---Do you have cherished memories of the Botsford Inn? For generations, families and friends celebrated special days at the Botsford Inn on Grand River Ave. – engagements, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and Sunday dinners. Built in Michigan’s pioneer days of 1836, the Inn has been witness to more than 170 years of Michigan history. Its current owner, Botsford Hospital, has restored the Inn’s exterior to its 1925 Henry Ford era appearance.
For the past year, The Botsford Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Botsford Hospital, has been selling commemorative bricks in the plaza directly outside the Inn. A purchase of a brick will support the renovation and restoration of the Inn’s interior, and your brick will be displayed in the Botsford Inn Commemorative Brick Plaza for future generations to share in the importance of this historic landmark. Whether you want to preserve the past or look to the future, the bricks allow you to honor or remember loved ones or special events.
This is the last chance to order bricks for installation that will take place in May. Bricks include a personalized inscription and orders must be received by Wednesday, March 10 for the May installation. 4” x 8” bricks are $250 and 8” x 8” bricks are $400. As a special offer, Botsford is offering a $50 discount on these prices. For more information on how you can share in the Botsford Inn’s history with a personalized brick, please call (248) 442-5045 or visit www.botsford.org. Facebook users can also join the group “Botsford Inn Commemorative Brick Plaza” to reminisce about the Inn, post photos or share stories.
