Travel back to a time when things were a whole lot simpler. Crossroads Village is a Great Lakes town from the turn of the century with 34 historic structures and a thriving community. Enjoy a 40-minute journey on an authentic Baldwin Steam locomotive, the Huckleberry Railroad, take a scenic ride on the Genesee Belle, a replica of the paddlewheel riverboats that were popular during Mark Twain's time, catch a show at the Colwell Opera House or learn a trade from one of the village's craftspeople. Today, learn all about sheep shearing, spinning, weaving, felting, wool dying and more while meeting Alpacas, rabbits and sheep. There will also be vendors and a fashion show. It is recommended that Huckleberry Railroad train tickets by purchased in advance as the train often sells out.
