Photographer's Note

This was Henry Ford's old boathouse. It's incorporated into the great natural landscapes created by famed landscape architect Jens Jensen. In fact he spent 6 years working on the mansion. He later worked on Henry's son's mansion on the other side of Detroit.

This was once connected to the Rouge River so Ford could take a boat down river to the Greenfield Village, his museum village, and further on to his factory. It is no longer connected to the river and only fills with water after snow melts, it rains or the river overflows, as I think this was the result of.

I would tell you more about it but the sign for this was in the water. Though only a foot deep I didn't have the boots to walk across to read the sign.

I really like how this is almost cave-like in appearance. It just fits so well in the landscape it could easily be overlooked, especially with the dense growth around it.
