1. Hunter House Marker
Inscription.  Stephen and Mary Hunter built this Greek Revival house in 1851. This style was popular in mid-1800s small towns just emerging from the frontier. In 1972, this home on Main Street was threatened by plans to cut an extension of Griswold Street through to the south. It became one of the early "survivors" that was moved to Mill Race Historical Village.
 
Erected by Northville Historical Society.

The style of home is often called “hen and chicks” because of the shape of the house. The home is a perfect representation of a middle class family in the Victorian era.
