ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Gladwin County Historical Village

When the town of Gladwin had it’s Centennial celebration in 1975, the Historical Society was born. It was housed in Gladwin’s old 1912 train depot and a few years later, a few old buildings were moved & reconstructed on the site to add to the historical feel & flavor. They have events & re-enactments in full dress in the old village…it’s a great way to see and experience what Gladwin County was like during Michigan’s booming lumber & logging business in the 1800’s.

The Gladwin County Historical Village (SEE PHOTOS ABOVE) is located at 515 East Cedar Avenue in Gladwin and the hours are Friday thru Saturday, 1p-4p and Sunday, Noon – 4p, from Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend…so ya better hustle if ya wanna get there before the season’s over!

Also check out the Gladwin County Historical Museum at 221 West Cedar Ave., Gladwin. They’re open Wednesday – Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm. Fin dout more at See old farm implements, High School yearbooks, memorabilia from the old Gladwin Movie Theatre, old phone equipment, barber shop and more cool stuff! The society has an annual “Carriage Festival” every August.
