Overcast skies and crisp 50 degree weather could not keep people away from “Members Day” at Greenfield Village today and the start of the 2018 season.
This is a real gem right in my own back yard! Henry Ford wanted to establish a place that captured the history and evolution of industry from the start of the 20th century to the present and how it changed the daily lives of people.
This unique attraction, located in Dearborn Michigan, had 2 distinct museums. The Henry Ford is an indoor museum that has a vast collection of artifacts and rotating special exhibits that focus on a specific topic, historical event or genre.
Greenfield Village is a 90 acre outdoor interactive museum where visitors learn what American life was like at the turn of the 20th Century. Visitors can enter historic homes and buildings and talk to docents, most who are dressed in historic apparel, to learn and ask questions about that specific building.
Throughout the summer I will hilight specific parts of the village in more detail…until then enjoy this snap shot of Members Day.
The last train ride of the day, a prefect way to end the day.
