Native Americans lived, traveled and hunted the hills and lakes around what is now Walker Tavern Historic Site. One local Native American foot trail eventually became U.S. 12, connecting Lake Michigan and Detroit. Spend the afternoon making your own pair of faux leather moccasins and discover how your shoes are very different from moccasins.
We've created some great opportunities for children with their adult companions to have fun and learn about history. See all 2018 Kids' Stuff programs.
