Crossroad Village

On Friday, a group of SVSU teachers, students and family members, traveled forty miles and a hundred years to the Crossroads Village, north of Flint. Our students walked down the dirt roads and boardwalks in the turn-of-the-century town. They sipped apple cider in the cider mill, teetered on stilts outside the toy shop and stood in the mist from the paddles of the Genesse Belle as it circled Mott Lake. They took pictures, laughed at the attempted jokes of the local tradespeople, all the while experiencing American culture--both the historical culture of Michigan as well as the culture of American tourism.

  1. I LOVE this place! What a neat field trip to take with the students. We're going to try to get to the Village at least once this summer.
