The Homer Historical Society

The Homerís Historical Society was organized as a bicentennial project in 1974 to preserve and protect Homer history, to educate people about the significance of local history and to establish a museum.  The dream of a museum was realized sooner than anticipated when in 1975 Maude Blair donated her familyís farm for that purpose.

Blair Historical Farm, one mile east of Homer on M-60, is a pioneer family farm built on land owned by her grandfather, Dr. George Blair, Homerís first doctor.  Miss Blair, a long time Detroit schoolteacher and administrator, was especially interested in having children learn about Homer history.  Her sister, Miss Bess Blair, was also a teacher.  Now, elementary school students visit Blair Historical Farm every spring to learn about local history and see how people used to live on a farm. 

Renovating the farm is an on-going project.  The house reflects the way people lived in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  Renovation work in the barn has provided an office, a display area, and a serving kitchen used during the Societyís annual Fall Festival that began in 1976.  A new outbuilding houses a working sawmill donated by Robert Ackley.  The old Albion Township Hall is the newest addition.  It was moved to the Blair Farm in 2006 from its original location on the corner of F Drive South and M-99.  The township hall will provide additional area for exhibits and space for meetings and programs. 

The Society raises funds for the museum with its annual fall festival, an herb workshop in the spring, car show at the farm in July, memberships, and other donations. 

Meetings are held the last Wednesday of the month from January through October.  In warm weather they are held at the Blair Farm.  Check the Homer Index for up to date information on meeting dates, times and locations.
