There is a very rich history in Bridge Valley. Early settlers began to inhabit the area in the mid-1800’s after the area became popular in the journeys of Indians and traders on their trips to and from Saginaw. Henry Ford owned land here and used the land as a family retreat. Later, he turned it into a training facility for Ford tractors. In the 1940’s and 50’s, Ford brought people from all over the world to this current Bridge Valley location to study repair and maintenance of the new tractors. Classes were also taught on farming principles and crop rotation in a school house that was built on the land. The Ford tractor division was relocated to Georgia, and the James O’Neil family purchased the Clarkston land in 1962. The family farmed the fertile land and masterfully cared for it as a nature reserve, planting over 90,000 evergreen trees along the way. Thus, the roots of current-day Bridge Valley were established, and its majestic stature in nature provides an opportunity to own an amazing piece of Clarkston area land on which to build your dream luxury estate home.
