A Visit To This Historic Homestead In Michigan Will Sweep You Back In Time

It’s no secret that we live in an ever-modernizing world. Technology, transportation, and communication have all undoubtedly changed by leaps and bounds over the course of the last century. But there’s something to be said for taking a step back and remembering a calmer time in America — a time when agriculture, farming, and quietude reigned supreme. Luckily for Michiganders, our state is home to a one-of-a-kind attraction that will sweep you back to a simpler era.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
