OUR BLISSFIELD TRAIN travels on a segment of the original
Erie & Kalamazoo Railroad Line that began operations in 1836, making this one of the very first railroads west of the Allegheny Mountains. Along the way, you’ll travel through the rich farmland of Southeastern Michigan, which is thought to have been, in prehistoric times, the bottom of an ancient lake we now call Lake Erie.
Upon arriving at Lenawee Junction, try to imagine what it must have been like when more than forty trains a day stopped there to exchange goods and passengers bound for such places as Chicago, Jackson, Monroe and Toledo.
Once you are back in Blissfield you’ll be able to casually browse the many shops and attractions in the historic business district.
