Michigan - Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad
What was yesterday really like? How simple was that simpler time? There’s a place where history comes to life and you’re part of the experience. It’s Crossroads Village, our one-of-a-kind collection of restored 19th century buildings, amusement rides and authentic narrow-gauge railroad. Here you’ll see what life “way back when” was all about. From the smithing of the iron to the churning of the butter to the pressing of the cider. And so much more.

Imagine what a ride on the Huckleberry Railroad can do. Each 40-minute journey behind our authentic steam locomotive takes you along the shores of Mott Lake, down a stretch of the historic Pere Marquette roadbed and back into the heart of Crossroads Village. Or discover the surprise waiting for you at the Village dock. It’s the beautiful Genesee Belle, a replica of the paddlewheel riverboats that were popular during Mark Twain’s time, and you’re invited on board for a scenic 45-minute cruise around Mott Lake.

When you’re looking to travel back in time – and make new memories for tomorrow – Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad is fun the whole family can enjoy.

Michigan - Flushing Area Historical Society
Flushing, MI - The Flushing Depot was built in 1888 and provided passenger service until 1971. In 1975 it was converted to the "Depot Restaurant," but in 1980 a fire gutted the building leaving only the outside walls standing. In February 1984 the former owners donated the remains of the building to the Flushing Area Historical Society. Under the leadership of Paul Wightman, fund raisers, private donations and grants from the Community Development Block Grants and Michigan Equity Funds provided money for restoration. The Depot was restored to its former appearance and opened as the Flushing Area Museum and Cultural Center on June 7, 1997.

Flushing Historical Society Endowment Trust. In 2000, the Flushing Area Historical Society established an Irrevocable Endowment Trust to continue improving the museum and educational programs. The Historical Society Board of Directors implemented the Flushing Historical Society Endowment Trust.

Our Mission... "To collect, acquire, preserve and interpret the history and cultural development of the area in and around Flushing, Michigan. The Historical Society shall maintain the historical integrity of the Flushing Depot and operate the facility as a museum and cultural center, using exhibits, publications and educational programs as the focus of its activities; as a repository for archival materials, a conduit for research of local history and genealogy, and provide educational materials and information about America's past."

Michigan - Houghton County Historical Museum
Lake Linden, MI - The Houghton County Historical Museum Complex in Lake Linden was once the site of the largest copper milling operation in North America. Today, it is home to our Museum, and also to the Lake Linden & Torch Lake Railroad, the one room Traprock Valley School House, the WPA era Leo Chaput Log Cabin and the Perl Merrill Research Center (which is our archives and genealogical facility). The HCHS Heritage Center, a former Congregational Church building built in 1887, is just around the corner.

We are located on M-26 in Lake Linden, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Museum building offers three floors of exhibits of local Copper Country mining, logging and cultural history. Included among the outdoor exhibits is a working Calumet & Hecla Mining Co. train with a 3’ gauge Porter steam engine that was used to transport various materials at their mill and smelter sites. The steam train is now used for passenger tours and interpretation of the milling operation.
