The Legacy of Carl Sandburg

Record #:
Carl Sandburg, one of the country's greatest poets and authors, purchased a house with 240 acres in Flat Rock in 1945. What surprises many people is the reason he and his family moved from Michigan. His wife, Lilian, had a business raising Chikaming goats. She was seeking a more temperate climate for her herd, considered one of the nation's finest. Sandburg wrote his only novel, Remembrance Rock, there. After his death in 1967, his home became a National Historic Site.
