Glazier Woods

Glazier Woods: Once An Important Stop On The Underground Railroad

Today, Glazier Woods is an idyllic setting for new homes, but the site – located just off Glazier Way - was once a welcome refuge for weary travelers who were escaping the tyranny of slavery.  

It’s no wonder, then, that while we were building the homes, I often stood there and thought, “If only this land could talk,” for few building sites have such an historically significant story to tell. 

It began in 1833 when Richard Glazier moved his family from New York to Ann Arbor which was incorporated as a village that same year.
