Ed Cross Farm

Ed Cross and his wife, Edith, built this house, barn and granary in 1919. As a young man Cross (1863 - 1938) spent several years working as a logger in Mackinac County, eventually returning to Spring Arbor. During the last fifty years of his life he operated a sawmill, a cider mill and a threshing rig. He also served as the township treasurer, as a highway commissioner, and on the Jackson County Board of Supervisors. In 1932, Ed Cross, like many farmers during the Great Depression, lost the farm to foreclosure.
