 “Fashions through the Ages” is this year’s theme as more than thirty member museums or historical societies roll out their red carpet to show off the unique history of their communities. 

Fallasburg pioneer village located three miles northeast of Lowell is one of the 30 participating museums this year. The quaint village is waiting to be discovered. The one-room schoolhouse will open for the season on Sundays from 2 to 4 p.m.

    Explore the “Spring into the Past” museum tour to celebrate spring and history. You will step back into the past, as the museums deck out their interiors with fashion of the past.
    It is the best time to tour the communities nestling on the three rivers; Grand River, Thornapple River and the Flat.
    The five counties make up the West, Central and Southwest regions of Michigan.
    You can also do some morel mushroom hunting in the nearby forests. It is the best time to visit Michigan as the nature and the communities come to full blossom.
    Thank you for visiting with us,
    writer and nature lover
