1. Interurban Station Marker
Inscription.  Starting in 1899, interurban rail lines ran into Northville from Detroit.
One line traveled on track along 8 Mile Road and into town on Griswold. On that line, this shelter was a waiting room for passengers at Newburgh Road. It had been kept in a home's backyard, and enjoyed as a playhouse and toolshed for 70 years before being moved to Mill Race in 1992.
 
Erected by Northville Historical Society.
