Created in 1972, it's built next to the Rouge River on 12 1/2 acres donated by the Ford Motor Company. This was once the site of a grist mill.
The village consists of a church, gazebo, school, rustic wooden bridge, blacksmith shop, general store, interurban station and several homes reminiscent of an era gone by. Also there is the Caddy Inn, where legend has it the building served a stoping point for the Underground Railroad prior to the Civil War.

By now I was hungry. As I meandered on and around main street, I came upon an Italian restaurant! What luck! My favorite food! As you remember from my Boston trip, I'm now looking for a new "favorite" Italian eatery! I do believe I've found it

The town of Northville is in the heart of their historic district. Many of the buildings are restored, and all are beautiful! I wandered the town a bit, and came upon some beautiful Victorian homes! The owners proudly allowed me to take pictures of these master pieces. Beautiful!
I've had a wonderful one day vacation, wandering this lovely city. It has a small town feel, even though it is surrounded by urban area on all sides.
So if you feel that a vacation is not affordable this fall, take a one day journey to Northville, enjoy some history, view historic beautiful Victorian homes, and for heaven sake, get a great plate of spaghetti! Enjoy! Or should I say Salute'!
I'm staying overnight in Northville with a puppy named Luna. You can read about her antics on my animal blog - Auntie M's Canine Capers and Feline Follies. (http://auntiemscaninecapersandfelinefollies.blogspot.com/) Tomorrow we'll see if Gertie the GPS will get me home, or get me lost! Stay tuned!
