From 1836 to 1855, when a stagecoach ride from Detroit to Chicago was a long and arduous five-day trip, a favorite stopping place to relax and enjoy a meal was Walker’s farmhouse and tavern. A Federal-style white clapboard home and New England-style farm. We interpret Michigan’s frontier settlement and stagecoach eras during the first half of the nineteenth century through exhibits, audio visuals and walking tours of the grounds. A reconstructed barn houses a blacksmith shop and frontier map display. The Walker Tavern contains exhibits reflecting an 1840's stage stop. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
