Houghton Lake Historical Village and Playhouse
Come and See History come alive. There are several historic buildings from the area to enjoy. The General Store is a combined display building and actual store. The store sells goodies reminiscent of yesteryear. As in most towns in early America, the general store is also the site of the local post office. The Edna postal stamp is used during Village Days. Edna was the original name of Prudenville, Michigan. The Village which has 13 historical buildings open includes a school, general store, print shop, blacksmith shop, barber shop, chapel, carriage shop, the Michelson Town Hall, the Homestead, the Sturge Building and a dress shop. During Village Days there are demonstrations of pioneer crafts, children’s games, a story teller and live musical entertainment at the Village and in the Historical Playhouse. The Village is open every Friday and Saturday in the summer, 12-4pm. Tours and special events are welcome - by reservation only.
