As I was out and about on a recent Saturday, I unexpectedly stumbled upon a lawn sale at this awesome old home in Bedford Township.
|Historical cabin in Michigan|
Must stop for lawn sale……..
|Pretty window with lace curtains|
I parked my Jeep and grabbed my camera because this place was even cuter up close.
The lawn sale was actually a fundraiser being held by the local historical society to benefit the continued restoration of the home.

After speaking with one of the volunteers, I learned that the structure was built in the 1830s.
And it once served as a summer home of Ina Duley Ogdon, a poet, hymn writer, and author, who was most noted for her composition “Brighten the Corner Where You Are.”

The home was not open for tours, but I did sneak a peek into the main cabin room which had a massive stone fireplace.
I heard that the house is decorated for the holidays and is open to the public, so I will be making a return visit later this year.
|Treasures I found at the lawn sale|
For today though, I was able to snap a few exterior pictures, find a few treasures, and learn about a little piece of history of our region.
So glad I stopped…
