The David Whitney House was built during the period of 1890-94 by the famous lumber baron David Whitney Jr., who was considered not only one of Detroit’s wealthiest personalities, but also one of Michigan's wealthiest citizens. The house is estimated to cost $400,000 (approximately $10,500,000 in today’s economy) and was featured in several newspapers of that time. The house is constructed using rose-pink South Dakota Jasper stone. It is measured to be 21,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) and has 52 rooms (including 10 bathrooms), 218 windows, 20 fireplaces, and a secret vault in the dining room, an elevator, and numerous Tiffany glass windows. The Tiffany glass windows have been estimated to be worth more than the house itself. The window designs often feature themes oriented around the purpose of the rooms they are located in. For example the music room’s windows are themed towards elements of music, as well as images of St. Cecilia: the patron saint of music. The grand staircase features a massive stained glass window portraying a knight, paying homage to the various members of the Whitney family who were knighted, as well as their lineage to Royal blood line in England. The house was the first residential home in Detroit to have a functioning elevator for personal use. The house has recently been featured as a filming location in Detroit’s up and coming film industry’s movie “LOL” starring Miley Cyrus, and Demi Moore.

Dating back to the renovations in the mid-1980, there have been rumored occurrences of supernatural activities on all three floors of the Whitney house. The causes of these events have been linked to the story of David Whitney Jr. and his wife both dying inside the mansion. To this day, some people believe that the ghost of David Whitney Jr. haunts the Whitney mansion. One of the most haunted areas in the house appears to be the elevator. There are reports of the elevator moving on its own between the floors without any passengers. Other unexplained apparitions have been reported on the second and third floors. One evening at closing, a staff member witnessed an older gentleman gazing out of the second floor dining room window, when he was asked to leave; the figure simply vanished into the floor. Reports by the mansion’s staff members of sounds of utensils being stacked and table settings being moved all on their own, have only added to the mystery of the Whitney mansion.

Bagg Farm Dining Room

Bagg Farm Dining Room

Bagg Bonanza Farm
Located in Mooreton, North Dakota.

My favorite room of the twenty plus in the Bagg Farm Main House. With an entrance of its own and instructions to the women that all bowls were to be kept full till the last man ate, this was the most used room on the farm . The farm had five women that lived in the women's section of the upper floor bunkhouse that were responsible for cooking and serving three meals a day to thirty to forty people everyday and during spring planting and the fall harvest season, up to one hundred fifty to two hundred men.
The food was prepared in the kitchen beside it and passed through the window to the women that kept the bowls and pitchers full, cleared the tables and made sure the last man in to eat had the same as the first.
A couple of Mr. Baggs rules were.........That as few women as possible were to be in the dining area and that the only reason any man had any business being in the bunkhouse was to either eat or sleep!

The Downing farm bunkhouse, originally built around 1882, was moved to the Bagg Farm in the winter of 1915, placed on a foundation and became the Main House of the Bagg Farm. The front half of the first floor contained the private living quarters for Mr. F.A. Bagg, his wife Sophia and their six children.
A large kitchen and a communal dining room for feeding hired hands were located in the back half of the building. Permanent farm employees were housed in the dormer rooms in the upper story of the bunkhouse.
Hired cooks worked in the kitchen of the main house and served all farm meals in the adjoining dining room.
