|The Fuerst Sisters|
The Fuerst Farmstead is known for its last owners, sisters Ruby and Iva Fuerst, who lived in their family home until their deaths in 1991. The farm property has had a long and rich history that parallels the growth of Novi as a community.
The property is now owned by the City of Novi and plans are underway for its restoration, rehabilitation and reuse as a community facility for educational and recreational purposes. At this time the buildings are closed, but the gardens and walkways are open to the public.
