A historic look...

On the corner of Edsel Drive and West Road in Trenton, Michigan, is the property that is now known as the Emily Bridge Frank Cultural Center.

The Bridge Farm was officially established in 1901 and was one of the first dairy farms in the area.

Emily, the only daughter of William and Anna (Mans), was seven years old when her family took residency and she lived here her entire life until she passed in 1972. She married Arthur Frank 1952, founded the Trenton Branch of the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association, and was well known for her collection of antiques, Currier & Ives prints, and butter molds. She was a Detroit school teacher but passion was her orchard and gardens of flowers, and she owned and operated the Flower Bell, a flower shop and greenhouse that was adjacent to the farmhouse.

Upon her passing, she willed most of her collection of antiques and artifacts to the Henry Ford Museum and left the City of Trenton her estate to be used as a cultural center. Today, it hosts an array of art and gardening programs, musical performances and special events!
