The way they have kept this place as a old village charm is good to see. Please visit Christmas celebrations if possible.

I live in Cincinnati and didn't know why I was going all the way up to Dearborn, Michigan to just see a fake town. Now I know. I wasn't walking through a fake village, I was walking into the actual birthplace of Thomas Edison and his workshop. I saw the place where the airplane was invented. And it wasn't just... More

This trip to Greenfield was for the night time Christmas season the Monday before Christmas. I had visited it in the summer daytime which was very impressive. However, I was disappointed this trip. Maybe it was just me but I expected more. At first I expected lights but soon realized the theme was about how it was at Christmas before... More

This is a must do for the holidays. We do not do the dinner, too expensive. The evening is great, do not miss anthony doing the night before Christmas by the schoolhouse. The horse brawn wagon is another not to be missed activity. Just be sure to wander and enjoy yourself.

Village staff do an incredible job at Holiday Nights! We didn't have time to see all of the attractions, but most memorable were the artisans. We really enjoyed the tinsmith and printing press, but could have spent the entire evening watching the glass blowers. We will return in the summer and allow a full day to view all of the... More

For English travellers, this is in some ways the equivalent of the Weald and Downland museum at Singleton, Chichester, but, being American, on a bigger scale. For instance, there is a full size American steam train circumnavigating this one ! Henry Ford built this, so of course his old family home is here, plus many other typical American buildings. But...

We have been members for years and this year went to supper with Santa during the village's holiday nights program. Dinner at the Taste of History was great and we got a personal visit from Santa right at our table. After the dinner we walked the village to see each of the historical homes decorated in period Christmas decor. The... More

Get your tickets in advance. It sold out a few nights we were thinking of going. It was like stepping into a Charles Dickens novel. A fun new holiday tradition started this week for us.
