A

ll across Richmond and Wayne County, fairy doors/ homes/gardens are popping up in various storefronts, cafes, museums, and gardens.

Fairy Doors These tiny dwellings are similar to the urban fairy homes found in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Why would urban fairies appear in Wayne County? We believe a few adventurous fairies followed former Ann Arborite to her new home here in Richmond. Heather Lerner, Joseph Moore Museum of Natural History Director, is a University of Michigan alumna. The first fairy door appeared at the museum late 2012. New fairy homes are being found weekly around the county. In early July, visitors and locals alike will

be able to venture out in search of Wayne County’s newest residents when the Urban Fairy Trail map/ passport is unveiled. Good to know: • To date, there are more than 25 fairy homes, doors and gardens. With more being announced almost daily. • A special gift is in store for those finding all the fairy dwellings. Passports will need to be returned to the Welcome Center in order to receive the special gift.
