Looking Back: Governor Warner Mansion
November 7, 2013
P.D. Warner, the father of Michigan’s 26th governor, Fred Warner, built the Warner Mansion, 33805 Grand River Ave., in Farmington in 1867.
This 1910 photo of the Victorian Italianate structure shows unknown individuals sitting on the then-lived-in mansion. The city of Farmington acquired the mansion on Dec. 23, 1980, from Gov. Fred Warner’s grandchildren; his daughter Edessa Warner Slocum was the last family member to live in the mansion.
