Gratiot County Area Historical Museum
The Gratiot County Area Historical Museum was established in 1987, but it is located in a large brick home built in 1881. The museum is free but accepts donations and is open May through October on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
The museum is comprised of the main brick building, a wooden barn which served as a carriage and horse stable during the last part of the 1800s and early 1900s, and a log cabin that was donated in 2017.
Come marvel at artifacts largely from the 1850s through the 1950s — including furniture, ceramics, glass, china, kitchenware, clothing, needlework, photographs, and postcards. Step into this massive time capsule and find out what Gratiot County looked like over 100 years ago.
Rooftop Landing Reindeer Farm
Rooftop Landing Reindeer Farm is a family-owned and operated business specializing in offering trained reindeer for holiday and specialty events around Michigan for over 30 years.
