Greenfield Village

Greenfield Village

Kids welcome

Entering Greenfield Village is like stepping into an 80-acre time machine. It takes you back to the sights, sounds and sensations of America’s past. There are 83 authentic, historic structures, from Noah Webster’s home, where he wrote the first American dictionary, to Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory, to the courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law. The buildings and the things to see are only the beginning. There’s the fun stuff, too. In Greenfield Village, you can ride in a genuine Model T or “pull” glass with world-class artisans; you can watch 1867 baseball or ride a train with a 19th-century steam engine. It’s a place where you can choose your lunch from an 1850s menu or spend a quiet moment pondering the home and workshop where the Wright brothers invented the airplane. Greenfield Village is a celebration of people — people whose unbridled optimism came to define modern-day America.

Tickets $24

      Depending on where you are in AA, it'll probably take up to 40 minutes or so. My parents used to live about 2 miles from GV and it would take me about 35 minutes to get to their place from southern Ypsi Township, just north of Bemis [I would take Whittaker/Huron St to 94 and I think you would exist at Oakwood]. So I imagine AA would be similar. If you're on the north side of AA, you could take 14 to 275 south to 94 east. 96 is currently closed for construction, hence, you can't go any further east so you'd have to exit at 275. I'm sure you could get directions from the GV website.
