Community activity often centers on the four blocks of Michigan Avenue from Brown Street to Clark Street. At the one end lies Whistlestop Park and the historically restored Michigan Central Railroad Depot. The Depot became a focal point of community activity as it developed from its stone frame to a finished reproduction in the early 1990’s. Its inviting gardens, quaint park and gazebo make for a beautiful focal point downtown.
At the opposite end of Michigan Avenue lies the Coe House Museum. Maintained by the Grass Lake Area Historical Society, the Coe House provides a look back to a time when the home was owned by the Detroit, Jackson and Chicago Railway Corporation and carries a number of artifacts and historical antiques accumulated over the years.
Aside from the historic Depot and Coe House Museum, downtown Grass Lake is home to several historic buildings of various architectural styles from the 1800’s and on. We welcome you to stop in and enjoy our frequent events, our unique establishments and the multitude of historic structures.
