Located across from the Pere Marquette Rail Trail, the Sanford Centennial Museum is a village-like complex that includes a general store, log cabin, township hall, church, and depot, along with train cars and two schools. Each building was moved from a location where it was in danger of being torn down. Today, the buildings are authentically restored and waiting to be explored by history lovers. When visitors step inside each one, they will find displays such as a doctor's office, dentist's office, and saloon. Political memorabilia, vintage tools, and logging implements are also showcased.
