GENESEE COUNTY — Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad turns 40 this year, and Genesee County Parks and Recreation hopes the public will join them to celebrate from late-May through Labor Day.
Come visit the Buzzell family home, believed to be the oldest wooden structure in the area, and Judge Wisner’s carriage house where he created the Buzz Wagon, the first car made in Flint. Enjoy live entertainment in the opera house on the second floor of brick general store that once anchored Fenton’s downtown.
The Village includes more than 30 buildings that played an important role in their communities before they were threatened with demolition. Each was moved to Crossroads Village with great care from locations around Genesee County and put to use again so you can experience life as it was in small Michigan villages in the late 1800s! Each weekend through the summer, we hold special programs for you take part in that explore our rich culture and vibrant history.
