6 Things You Should Know about The CrossRoads Village

Have you been to the Crossroads Village? There is countless number of fun activities there to see. Parents and children will see several exhibits and much more.

The Crossroads Village is located at 6140 Bray Road, Flint, Michigan. This is one of the many tourists attractions.

1. Barber Shop

One of the greatest attractions that I liked was the Barbershop which dates back in time. The attendant that was telling the story about this barbershop pointed out some important points. There was a time that women were not allowed in the barbershops, because men would come in there and take baths as well as get their hair cut. In there you would see the tub sitting out in the open and a stove in the near center of the room. For those that love to play checkers, there is a checker set on the table. So you can have a game going while waiting to get your hair cut.

2. T.N.North & Son Bank

As you enter this bank you will see a se of U.S. 19th Century coins. Whereas the banks now have some glass teller windows, the teller windows then had a  set of bars in the front of them similar to the bars on a jail cell.



3. Black Smith Shop

You definitely do not want to miss the Black Smith Shop. Here you will see the blacksmith making mini-horse shoes that they actually sell for $3.00 a piece.



4. Stanley School

This school is named Stanley School and apparently there were various age groups in one school room. Just imagine, one building for Kindergarteners through 12th grade.



5. Llamas

These were the most beautiful, colorful Llamas that you can see.


6. Ferris Wheel

Children love the Ferris Wheel, a Carousel Merry-go-round, and a Village train as well. These are just some of the great things that you will see at the Cross Road Village. There is never a dull moment there.
