This 229 acre property was once Ottawa County’s “poor farm” providing housing and work for indigent residents. Now an Ottawa County Park, the site is a breathtaking array of rolling open fields, steeply sloped stream corridors, and 1367 feet of Grand River shoreline. Remnants of the past include the 1930’s era barn and historic cemetery. Portions of the property are leased to the West Michigan Agriculture Education Center for crop demonstration and public education purposes.
