Sharon Mills Offers Glimpse Into County History

Located on the banks of the River Raisin in Manchester, Sharon Mills County Park offers your family the opportunity to visit a significant historic site in a beautiful natural setting. On August 19 and 26, the park will offer a Sharon Mills Open House. The mill at the park was originally constructed in the mid-1850s. Sharon Mills is listed as a State of Michigan Historic Site. During the open house visitors will learn the history of the mill: it was purchased and nearly completely rebuilt by Henry Ford in the 1930s for use as a small factory.

Sundays, August 19 and 26. 1-4pm.
