Over the years, many celebrities have purchased a home, or even two, in Michigan. Some Michigan homeowners over the years include Muhammad Ali, who had an 81-acre property in Berrien Springs. Or the late Aretha Franklin owned a home in Detroit. Of course, we can’t leave out the late film critic Robert Ebert who had a home in Harbert. There’s Berry Gordy’s “Motown Mansion,” and the countless of athletes throughout the Mitten.

Most recently, celebrities like Kid Rock, Michael Moore, and Ted Nugent have sold their Michigan homes. However, this doesn’t mean that other celebrities have jumped ship. A few celebrities still own homes in Michigan.
