A Visit with grandchildren
Jul 2019 • Family
On a recent trip to Grayling we visited Wellington Farm with our son and our two young grandchildren. It was an interesting and educational experience. The tour starts with a wagon ride from the office and gift shop back to the village. They have set up old buildings with many pieces of old farm equipment. A tour guide will take you through the village and explain everything you are looking at. The guide is very knowledgeable and will answer questions. The tour ends at the animal farm where children can see a llama, sheep, pot belly pig, rabbits and chicken. You are then taken back to the office, where you can shop. I recommend this attraction.

Old time feel

We planed a wedding at Wellington. It turned out great and my daughter was happy. This place has a lot of potential for more and I hope the people in charge manage to find help to make that happen.

Quaint 1932 era community
Aug 2017 • Solo
We have a cottage in the area so on Sunday mornings I like to get up and go to the Stitesville United Methodist Church which is on site for Sunday morning worship. Attendance is usually very modest, but I love the feel of the old chruch and the message is usually in the form of an interesting story. Service is at 9:00 so I usually make it home in time to make everyone breakfast. Very cool place............I wish I could go more often. If you are attending church, I do not believe their is an admission fee...at least I have never been charged, but I leave a little something is the plate too.....God Bless.

Historical stop
Jul 2017 • Family
This place is a good stop if you want to see history from the 1930s. It is an older couple who started this and would love to have more volunteers! They offer camping spots in the summer. It is a nice place to visit if you are in the area.

Our favorite place for pumpkins!
Oct 2015 • Family
We have been going to Wellington every year for pumpkins since our daughter was 1. She's now 14 and it's still her favorite place to pick out the perfect one for carving.
We love Wellington and its volunteers.

They have living history. They have special events, wagon rides, living exhibits for life in the old days and animals. They have a pavillion. Plus you can pick up fresh veggies & pumpkins.
