In an area paved over by modern development, it's nice to find a few historical buildings that have been preserved in this pretty little historical park. They even have an old tollgate house and a short stretch of the plank road. Imagine bumping down that...More

I visited on my own and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and little lake. I explored at my own pace and read about the different installations. Arrangements can be made for a guided tour which must be interesting.

It's educational, fun and if you're lucky, you can get to go during an event or during the farmers market.

The Meridian Historic Village is very quaint little village. It has realistic depictions and actual historical buildings that have been transplanted to the area. The people that work there have a great deal of information to share with you, too.

It's a great place for kids, who can fish from the dock. The nearby Nokomis Learning Center is a must for everyone interested in Native American history and culture.

this place is really nice to stroll through and enjoy..nice big pond to reflect. Most buildings are locked so you need to know when they are open for viewing. I used to help out here with the buildings and they all need upkeep at all...More

This isn't Greenfield Village, but for our area, this is a very quaint collection of history. I see many school groups visiting; it's the perfect size for a small field trip. I would definitely visit.
