Visiting this museum will bring back good memories for the oder generation while showing the younger ones what it was like 'in the day'. Interesting exhibits, hands on stuff, and a well presented display make this unique museum well worth a visit when you are in town.

This is an old interurban railroad substation which is now an historical museum. There is a restored interurban trolley car parked outside next to the museum. Inside are displays representing this area of Michigan, including a reproduction of an early schoolroom.

Wow! There is a lot of history in this town you never knew about! I love the history of the railway and how it started! Very interesting and the hostess is so informative! She truly loves this town and the history! If you want to learn about how a city got started, this is the place to go!

I like that the curators switch out the displays. I have been there for a concert and several banquets.
