Interurban - Detroit to Northville
Co-Author of “When Southeast Michigan Rode the Rails” and rail enthusiast, Mr. Richard Andrews, will excite us with a trip from Detroit to Northville. The main focus of his talk will be on the branch line serving Northville off the mainline at Wayne. He will also discuss the little-known branch from Farmington to Northville via Eight Mile and Griswold. No known photos exist of this section of line which connected to a line along Grand River Avenue. Dick will bring a copy of his book for all to review, although there will be no books for sale. He will also provide map and fare receipt copies for all Northville Line interested parties.
Monday, January 28, 2013 7 p.m. New School Church at Mill Race Historical Village 215 Griswold in Northville.
Admission: Free - Donations gratefully appreciated.

More About Mill Race Village
Mill Race Village exists to preserve Northville's rich history. Free to the public, the "village" consists of a number of buildings arranged to give visitors the feeling of what pre-20th century Northville was like. Perfect for picnics and field trips, the Mill Race Village grounds host historic buildings that at one point were faced with demolition. The Northville Historical Society moved the buildings to Mill Race Village to provide residents with a link to their past.
