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.
