The historic Ellis Barn has seen plenty in its 130 years, but it has never hosted a hoedown – until now.
The hoedown featured line and contra dancing with long-time caller, Glen Morningstar, all to the live music provided by the Olde Michigan Ruffwater Stringband. The grand barn, with its gambrel roof, was part of the Ingomar Stock Farm, owned by Norman J. The barn includes an indoor riding arena, 11 box stalls, tack rooms, an office, horse exercise room, mechanical exercise ring and a cavernous second floor for hay, straw – and now, dancing. The Ellis Barn is located at 12451 Andersonville Road, Davisburg (48350) within the Springfield Oaks County Park.

I live in florida, but plan to travel out West this July, and thought if I could find some pecky cedar to buy, the trip would be worth it.
The Clarkston Community Historical Society sponsored an evening of dining and country dancing at the barn from 7-11 p.m. Ellis, and is the only Michigan barn referenced in the nationally renowned book “The American Barn.” Built in 1884, six generations of the Ellis family owned the barn until the property was sold for a residential development. Then it was relocated from its Dixie Highway location to Springfield Oaks County Park and rededicated in 2005.
They have pecky cypress here where i live, but i need some pecky cedar to finish an addition project to the siding on my house.
