Jack Frost Farm Tour

Arrangements have been made  to visit the Jack Frost Farm for a group tour on September 27, 2023, at 10 AM.  The  Farm is located at 61741 Campground Road, Washington, MI, just north of 28 Mile Road.  General information about Jack Frost is presented as follows from the Jack Frost Museum website:

Jack A. Frost was an electrical contractor and supplier of lighting for the motion picture and studio industry.  He was the elecrical contractor during the construction of Detroit’s Cobo Hall in the late 1950s.

Jack was a charter member and founder of the Rolls Royce Club of America.  The “Jack Frost Award” is given to the most popular automobile annually at the National Rolls Royce Meet.

Jack Frost’s passion for cars drove him to build the 63 acre museum with 11 buildings starting in the 1920’s and completing the last building in 1961.  55 cars were stored at the Jack Frost Auto Museum.  Jack’s death in 1982 threw the museum in trust for 5 years until Dale Wells made the purchase in 1987, making the Museum available to the public.

The tour, which lasts about one hour, will be guided and will be both indoors and outdoors.   Visitors will view the museum and  restoration area.  Donation for the tour is $15.00.  If you  have any questions, please call Jim Holcomb at 248.652.2458. 

If you would like to attend for a unique experience, provide name(s), contact number and number of guests for the tour and a check($15.00/guest) made out to the GWAHS.   Please make your reservations by September 22, 2023, so that we have a list of guests.   Mail names and check to the Greater Washington Area Historical Society(GWAHS), P O Box 94144 Washington MI 48094.  Donations will benefit both the Jack Frost Museum and the Greater Washington Area Historical Society.  Thank you.
