Sunday, August 29, 2010, visit Greenmead Historical Park from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Enjoy a tour of the grounds, gardens and buildings.
This city owned park serves as a legacy of Michigan’s agricultural heritage. The property was originally the 1820’s homestead of Michigan pioneer, Joshua Simmons. It includes the original farm complex, Historical Village, picnic facilities and recreational areas.
The farm complex features an 1841 Greek revival farmhouse and its outbuildings, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The farm maintains its unique architectural character in that nine of its eleven original outbuildings are still intact that feature period artifacts and furnishings. Together, the buildings and the grounds tell the story of farm life in rural Michigan.
Pack up the family, bring a picnic lunch and learn more about Livonia’s history!
