Message from FHS president Ken Tamke

Come and explore the Fallasburg village today

Villagers have always recognized what a special place Fallasburg is, from the founding settlers to present day inhabitants.  Fifty years ago, villager Leonora Tower felt it was time to share this resource with the community at large. So, the West Central Michigan Historical Society was born, which  later became the Fallasburg Historical Society.

I marvel at how many visitors, locals and West Michiganders from far and near, are just discovering Fallasburg Village.

“Wow, I didn’t realize this existed,” is the most common response as they browse our museums and learn about this colorful slice of history.

I invite you to help us celebrate this 50TH Anniversary of our preservation efforts by taking a fall color tour through the Fallasburg Park across the Covered Bridge into the charming pioneer village.

Take a walk or a bike ride through the village this fall. Check out the gems of history, the John Fallass house, the Misner House, The Tower Farm & Barn and the one room schoolhouse museum.

The museum is open on Sundays from 2 p.m to 4 p.m. Docent led tours are available by appointment for groups.

Mark your calendars for a vintage Christmas in Fallasburg on Dec. 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 13944 Covered Bridge Road, north of Lowell.

Sign up for Fallasburg Today E-newsletter on our FHS facebook page to stay in the loop.
