Visit some historic buildings by downtown Northville. Just big enough to get that historic feel in a quiet, treed setting. Quaint. And then walk down the street for a lunch on Main Street. Very nice!

Tucked below Northville's Historic downtown, and buffered by Johnson Creek, this well preserved grouping of restored Victorian homes & businesses is a step back in time. The buildings are only opened for limited times, but a quick stroll through the Village is always enchanting. A...More

A wonderful step back into a quieter less hurried time. We've been there for civil war re-enactors to turn of the century baseball.
