    Crossroads Village Christmas, Huckleberry Railroad

    Crossroads Village Christmas and Huckleberry Railroad | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

    I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a lovely nostalgic Christmas with friends and family than to climb aboard a vintage steam train and wander through a cheerful 1800’s Christmas village! 

    You can experience it all at Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad in Flint Michigan.  The Huckleberry Railroad is an incredible Michigan winter train ride experience!

    Visit the Incredible Michigan Christmas Town of Crossroads Village!

    Incredible Michigan Christmas Town of Crossroads Village

    From your first step into this nostalgic 1800’s era village, you can’t help but feel joy and holiday cheer!  Wander through the streets or along the sidewalks to peek into several buildings to see what it was like to live in 1860-1880.  

    Check out the Stanley School, reconstructed from largely original materials, the Dr. Barbour’s Office, Fenton General Store and Opera House. We love walking through the 1800’s era U.S. Post Office. 

    The opera house was previously used by churches, schools and fraternal organizations. It was last used in 1975 as a dime store and then it was taken down and rebuilt where it currently stands in 1978. If you take a close look at the bricks, you can see the initials FLT.  It was a symbol for the Odd Fellows International fraternal organization and means, “Friendship, Love and Truth.”

    Effort was made to furnish all of the buildings with artifacts of the period 1860-1880 and create an impression of a “living village” with the sights, sounds, smells, and activities characteristic of that period.  In addition to preserving buildings and artifacts, the Village serves as a place to demonstrate the crafts of the past.
