  • June 29 - Tea with Clara
    Registration closes June 24

    Clara and Henry Ford—yes, the Henry Ford—visited Walker Tavern on a number of occasions. Clara loved to have tea with her friend Mrs. Hewitt. Enjoy tea time as Clara Ford did on this delightful summer Wednesday afternoon.
  • July 13 - Automobile Days
    Registration closes July 8

    Missing the fast-paced racing at Michigan International Speedway this month? Learn about automobile travel on U.S. 12; then, invent your own automobile and build it from recycled materials. Will you grab the checkered flag?
  • August 10 - Back to School Days
    Registration closes August 5

    Summer has flown by and now it's time to head back to school. Join our school ma'am as she helps you brush up on your grammar, arithmetic, spelling and elocution. Once you have mastered your sums, there may be time for recess with jump rope, rolling hoops, sack races and, of course, crack the whip! Maybe you will be lucky enough to take home a gold star.
