Baseline Marker

International artist and Novi resident David Barr speaks about his Baseline Marker sculpture at its dedication on September 20, 2011

Located in the ITC Community Sports Park at Eight Mile and Napier Roads, the Baseline Marker is the third in the series designed by Novi Artist, David Barr. The marker was created in cooperation with several organizations and individuals in the Novi area and had significant funding support from the Americana Foundation. Dedicated in 2011, Novi's obelisk has key elements depicting Novi's farm and fruit growing origins, the railroad, Grand River Avenue, and other early modes of transportation essential to Novi's economy, as well as Novi's transition to a recreation destination for Detroit. Contact the Novi Historical Commission Chairperson at the Novi Public Library at 248-349-0720 for additional information.
