Beware that professional - commercial - photographers are not allowed to use this Mill Race Scenery without prior permission. That is why As a inexperienced- very beginner photographer I can take shoots of the family there without a problem.

We try to go to as many of the teas that they host as possible. Always a good time. It's the same formula. Tea in the Cady House, talk in the church. We enjoy them. It a nice place to visit. Always.

It is wonderful that Northville has preserved some of it's history here. The town itself is filled with wonderful Victorian houses and restored store fronts but this park gives you a chance to step back in time. A good place to stop by and "smell...More

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!

It is a nice stroll through history looking at all the historic houses. It is not huge and the buildings are most of the time closed. But if you have little kids you can walk through and then let them play at the playground next...More

Who would have thought that mere yards away from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century you could step back to the 19th century. This peaceful, quiet collection of 19th century buildings is beautiful. Strolling down the gravel roadway you see homes and buildings...More

This lovely park on the edge of the historic district brings a lot of historic Northville together in one place. We walked with friends reading the descriptions of the different building. Very educational. Pretty flowers.

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
