Welcome to Mill Race Village, Northville

Once the site of a grist mill, Mill Race Village is a living museum built on land donated to the City of Northville by Ford Motor Co. From 1972, historic buildings were moved from other locations in the City, or reconstructed on site, and the Village is now home to the New School Church, a one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop with working smithy, a general store, a gazebo and a rustic wooden bridge.
