"Wilson Fund bestows $7 million to restore MBH"
"Oakland University has received a $7 million gift from the Matilda R. Wilson Fund, a charitable trust Matilda Dodge Wilson established in 1944, to help repair and restore Meadow Brook Hall. Much of the architectural infrastructure will be refurbished. Original tile work, wall hangings and plasterwork will be restored, and upgrades will be made to the building's plumbing, HVAC, mechanical and electrical systems. Work also will be completed on the grounds of the hall, including its gardens, as well as Knole Cottage."
