The history of Northville, Michigan, is alive at Mill Race Village. Created in 1972 by the Northville Historical Society, the village serves as a focal point for the Northville community while preserving architectural styles common to the area prior to 1900. A living museum, the village was built on land donated to the City of Northville by the Ford Motor Company. Once the site of Northville's first grist mill, the village consists of a church, bell pier, gazebo, school, rustic wooden bridge, blacksmith shop, general store, Interurban Station and several homes reminiscent of an era gone by.

  • Well kept and cared for. We love taking the kids here and letting them lose. Always froendly people walking around, and with the stream right there, it's a peaceful place. They also do all sorts of events that are fun. Glad a place like this still exists and hasn't been turned into MORE condos.
  • It's a beautiful place to stroll around. Being a photographer, it's the perfect place to have a family or a couple shoot. Nice shades and old rustic buildings. Plenty of places to photography. Not to mention the little falls which adds the cherry on top. Must try place and you will love this if you are a photographer. Best time to visit is during sunset when the rays pass through the buildings and trees.
