 Livingston Centre Historic Village hosting annual Fall Fest Sept. 11

The Livingston Centre Historic Village, inside the Fowlerville Fairgrounds, will be hosting the annual Fall Fest this coming Saturday, Sept. 11, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Ample on-site parking included in the admission price of $5 (adults) or $1 (17 and younger).

This event will delight the entire family. There will be craft and food vendors, Barrel Train Rides, Kids' Games, Wagon Rides, as well as Live Entertainment, including a local Tarot Card Reader. The model train inside the Pere Marquette Depot will be running throughout the day to delight train lovers of all ages. The annual Raffle will be held at the close of that day, with handmade quilts as first and second prizes.

Tours of the eight buildings that make up the Historic Village will be continual throughout the day and are offered as part of the admission fee. Some tours will be self-guided like the 1910 Hartland Barber Shop and the 1870 Clinton Shoe Repair & Harness Shop from Pinckney, moved to the Village in 1991 and 1992, respectively.

Other structures will have docents that can share the stories of these artifacts of Livingston County. This includes the Kirkland House, built in 1859 for the George Kirkland family, and donated by George Kirkland III in 1990. The Kirkland house has been undergoing repairs for several years, courtesy of the annual fundraisers---and successful because of generous area residents

The Fall Fest benefits the care and restoration of the historic buildings, all of which are found inside the Village at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds.

Volunteers are still needed to assist in many different roles. Please consider helping to make this day a success; training is available on site. For more information, call Matt D. at 517-294-6710

The Coughran School will be open during Fall Fest.
