The Village of Dundee is located on the banks of the River Raisin in Monroe County, Michigan. The historic Ford Mill, constructed by Henry Ford as a "cottage industry," is now used for a variety of community uses such as a community center, Village Council chamber and community museum.
The bank of the River Raisin, adjacent to the former mill spillway has always been a popular fishing area. Unfortunately there was no definable access to the site and those wishing to access the River Raisin had to traverse down a steep dirt embankment.
This project, financed in part with a grant through the Michigan Natural Resource Trust Fund (MNRTF), was sponsored by the Dundee Downtown Development Authority through the Village of Dundee.
The project provides Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility to the River Raisin; incorporates water tolerant plants into the design for riverbank stabilization; and seating areas for viewing.
