The Country Store Museum is housed in an old rural school building called the Papermill School, which was named for the nearby Christopher McDowell paper mill on the River Raisin. The schoolhouse was built in the 1860’s and was used as a school for 100 years, until 1962. Now used as a replica of a common country store of about 1918. Exhibits are authentic, with artifacts donated by local families and businesses. Seasonal hours: Friday and Saturday of the month June through August, 12-5:00 pm; call the main Museum for information and special events.
