Greenfield Village, Detroit

Filed under: Travel — Melina Gunnett @ 2:09 AM

Detroit was just meant to be a pit stop, but I ended up stopping at Greenfield Village, which is part of the Ford Museum.  It is an 1800’s village and most of the buildings are original or have been brought to the spot, including Edison’s Research facility.  There was a lot to see.  Below are a few pictures to give you an idea of what the place was like.

  1. These are dangerous, because the terms of the agreement may include that if you do not pay the loan off in a year,
    on day 366 you will owe the entire years worth of payments at typically 20% interest.
    Then you will have to look at several offers for products and services before you are allowed to proceed.
