WHEEL FOR RESTORATION
On Saturday, October 7th at 8:30 a.m. Kerry McLean left Hart Plaza in Detroit to travel on his amazing monocycle
across the state by following Michigan Avenue (US 12).Kerry traveled approximately 35 miles per hour for
about 12 hours to reach the city of Cassopolis on the 8th. The Friends of the Foster Farmhouse and
McLean hope to raise over $20,000 for the historic Banks-Dolbeer-Bradley-Foster Farmhouse.
Before Kerry left Hart Plaza, he joined the Friends and visited four other known Underground Railroad stops in the area.
The first stop was the First Congregational Church, 33 East Forest. Next they visited the Second Baptist Church,
441 Monroe Street.The group then moved to the George DeBaptiste and Williams Lambert houses where
Dr. Michelle S. Johnson, coordinator of the Michigan Freedom Trail Commission,
then spoke on the history of the two houses.
Kerry McLean, a resident of the Walled Lake area, has taken an avid interest in the restoration
of the Foster Farmhouse and wanted to help raise funds through his journey. McLean, a welder and fabricator by trade,
created his Rocket Roadster and Monocycles through over 20 years of research and development
and has traveled extensively in both the U.S. and Europe with his unique vehicles.
