Historic Webster Village

 

 
In January 2022, we received a grant from the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF) to engage the community in planning a project: “Historic Webster Village: The Hub for Healthy and Fulfilling Aging in a Rural Community.” We set about to collect data–survey data, focus group data, and interview data–to determine what people living in Webster Township believe is needed most to support such a Hub.
 
The data was analyzed to begin developing a 5-year plan for the WTHS Historic Webster Village. Many organizations (Community Coalition: Northfield Township Library, Whitmore Lake DDA; Kindred Spirits: local historical society leaders; Huron River Watershed: Chris Olsson; Webster Township Supervisor John Kingsley; Whitney Farmstead; Spinners’ Flock; Huron Valley Woodturners; Dexter Wellness Coalition; 5 Healthy Towns Foundation; Dexter Garden Club; Kaleidescope) are working with WTHS to support the development of this plan. The plan encompasses intergenerational involvement as well and to this end, several youth-oriented organizations (Dexter High School National Honor Society, FFA, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts) in Chelsea, Dexter, Saline, and other surrounding communities are involved in supporting activities and services to our aging residents.
