A Place to Rest

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.

In the mid 19th century, a stagecoach ride from Detroit to Chicago was a grueling five-day trip. Today, Sylvester Walker's stagecoach stop along that historic route offers stories of Michigan's agricultural and travel heritage. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
