Land clearance as seen in the above aerial photo, is the first step toward the future Joseph F. Buhr Memorial Park in Pittsfield township. The 54-acre plot of land has been cleared of trash and brush, has been plowed and, next year, will be planted in wheat to keep the land in good condition until park and playground development begins in the distant future. The land is part of the Robert Campbell farm. The barn is clearly visible. The sire has a 964-foot frontage on Packard Rd. and extends back one-half mile. The monetary gift for the property was donated by the Buhr Machine & Tool Co. here and the R & B Tool Co. of Saline. The park is to be in the memory of the late founder of Buhr Machine & Tool Co.

The dark, cool atmosphere of another era returns the visitor to a time when there were no high-rises on Ann Arbor's horizon. In the photo at far left, sunlight slants through gaps in the plank sides of the big old barn.
