Upton House in Sterling Heights
Michigan experienced another gorgeous weekend weatherwise, as it was sunny but chilly. The Upton house in Sterling Heights was bathed in sunshine and begging for a photo to be taken. Built in 1866 out of brick, it is a great monument to the past. The style, with that darling cupola on top, is Italianate. It stood on 138 acres of farm land owned by William Upton adjacent to the Clinton River. The restoration of this beautiful home took place in the 1980's and it is now used for city public offices as it is next to the police station and library on Utica Road at Dodge Park.
