My favorite home retreat Aug 16, 2012
It is expensive because you have to pay for parking, the ticket to enter, for all of the rides, and dining. I would suggest dining elsewhere - though I've heard its very old fashioned and fun to dine inside. I will at some point. It's so much fun.

It is basically a little village (walled) with real homes and streets. Many homes are of famous inventors, creators, and well-known people from history. Such as Henry Ford himself, and the creator of Webster's Dictionary. There are maybe 150 homes or so in here? I don't know, all I do know is that it's large enough to get lost in. There is a wishing bridge (hold your breath, make a wish, and walk across without exhaling) they have a printing shop from the old days, an old bicycle store, an old train station, farm area, slaves homes, etc. They don't sell anything, but they are fun to look through. There is an old house where people are dressed up and cooking food they would have made in that time period. The food literally floors me it smells so delicious. They have a great job :) Haha. Also, there is a factory where workers blow glass and create things out of it - they sell them in the gift shop at the front but I am sure they are expensive items. There is a nice carousel, model a's, model t's, other older vehicles, and carriage rides available.

Also, don't miss the war re-enactments from the civil war period. Or baseball games (they dress up from the early 1900's to play). It's always exciting. There is so much history being contained and if you want to know how people used to live in other time periods, come here.

They moved all of these buildings to Dearborn along the years and it's amazing that they once housed so many amazing things.

Go here and you won't be let down. Bring a bottle of water, VERY comfy shoes, and sunblock in the summer.

I come here twice a year as a local.
