150th anniversary of the Civil War, about 200 reenactors descended on Wolcott Mill Metropark , Michigan
Wolcott Mill Historic Center Metropark Ray Township Michigan
This 2,625-acre metropark is nestled against the banks of the north branch of the Clinton River in Ray Township.
At the Historic Center, visit one of the few historic grist and feed mills remaining today, and a barn museum to discover the importance of old mills and the history of American barns, complete with antique farming equipment and a restored Model T dump truck.
Visit a late-20th century working farm, then drive a few miles and 100 years into the past to see historic Wolcott Mill, built in the 1840s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Or, grab your clubs and play the 18-hole golf course. And if you’re looking for solitude along the North Branch of the Clinton River, visit Camp Rotary.
Meet the animals on the 250-acre working farm. Wolcott Mill is the only known public farm in the state of Michigan where all six heritage breeds of dairy cow, Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Jersey, Milking Short Horn and Holstein, reside year-round. In addition, the farm features a wide variety of other animals, including miniature and drafts horses, multiple species of goats as well as a wide variety of fowl.
Hike through beautiful wooded trails and open fields at the Historic Center and Camp Rotary. If you are looking for equestrian trails, bring your horse to ride along 10 miles of trails that meander through woods, meadows and along the Clinton River.
