The Centennial Farm Program is intended to recognize farms that have remained in the same family for one hundred years or more and highlight the family farm’s contributions to Michigan’s development.
The first Centennial Farms were designated by the State of Michigan’s Michigan Historical Commission beginning in 1948 with support from Detroit Edison Company, Consumers Power Company, farm groups and local electrical cooperatives like Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op.
To apply for the Centennial Farm Program, contact Melissa VanSchoten, Executive Assistant, at (800) 423-6634 extension 1011, or via email at [email protected]; or visit the Historical Society of Michigan’s website.
