White Pine Village is a very cool place to visit if you are in to history. They have moved lots of old buildings to the village from the surrounding area. There are old general stores, doctor's office, restaurant, etc... The neatest part is the old chapel with a beautiful stained glass window. I also enjoyed the old sawmill, they had... More

Just a little outside downtown Ludington (about 6 miles) is this treasure! We guided ourselves among the 29 structures that are either original or replicated. All very interesting depicting life in mid-19th century Michigan.

Photographed my cousins wedding in September and took some fantastic photo! Not to toot my own horn. The historic buildings offer a great backdrop and the grounds are full of different areas that offer various perspective. I had a great time in the Village.

This is a miniature of Dearborn's Greenfield Village, with 29 historic buildings lovingly restored and furnished. We spent an entire afternoon there, wallowing in history and a look back into the past. If you're in Ludington, you have to see this place.

Very nice historical village with about 30 buildings to visit. Map is well laid out and easy to follow. Loved the Dr.'s Office the best - take note of the price list for services! Had a few "hands-on" exhibits, which would be great for kids. Nice little gift shop with friendly, informative staff. Only suggestion I have is to clean... More

Those with an interest in history will love this. The buildings are close enough to each other for easy walking and give an impression of an actual village. The descriptive booklet was worth the extra $2, though the free map was good enough and most things inside the buildings were described adequately. The only reason I didn't give it 5... More

Very nicely done complete 1800's village. Nice side trip and worth the time to visit. Guides in period costume and very informative. Nice little ice cream store as well as period "toys" for the kids to try out (ie: jump rope, stilts, etc)

If you love history you will love White Pine Village. For a reasonable fee you can tour the old buildings of historic Ludington. It was like traveling back in time. My husband and I really enjoyed all of lumbering history, as well as the original court house. This was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Wandering through the village is a trip back in time. It was fascinating to see how people would have lived (and shopped) a century or more ago. The museums also held our interest. The collections hold a variety of pieces that were fun to see.
