Bloomfield Open Hunt History
As fox hunting waned in Grosse Pointe, a number of the members joined with a group in Bloomfield to hunt more open land. In the Fall of 1914 these gentleman founded the Bloomfield Open Hunt in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. This group purchased the Hagerman Haycock farm on Long Lake Road and remodeled the farmhouse to serve as a clubhouse. Edward P. Hammond was the first president of the Bloomfield Open Hunt. E.S. Nichols, who served as Huntsman at Grosse Pointe, also served as Master and Huntsman of the Bloomfield Open Hunt until 1925 when Arthur Kirby was hired as Huntsman. Mr. Kirby was the only professional Huntsman the BOH ever had and he served for forty years, retiring in 1965 when the BOH had its final hunt.
