Sanford Centennial Museum 2222 Smith Street Sanford MI 48657
Heads Up for the June MARP Membership Meeting!
MARP members will gather on Saturday, June 22 at the Sanford Centennial Museum in the village of Sanford, MI off U.S. Highway 10, about nine miles northwest of Midland, MI.
Exact meeting times to be confirmed!
The Sanford Centennial Museum houses an extensive local history collection. There are nine historic buildings, including two schools, a general store, log cabin, township hall, church, train depot and train, all authentically restored and furnished. Inside the buildings, collections include vintage tools, implements from the logging days, political memorabilia, a dentist's office, a saloon, toys, household goods, and much more. The Museum Complex Map gives a good idea of the richness of the site.
Located on the Tittabawassee River, one mile off U.S. Highway 10, near Sanford Lake and its beaches, and across from the Pere Marquette Rail Trail, Sanford offers enticements to making this an early season weekend getaway.
The meeting itself will be an opportunity for members to engage in brainstorming about MARP’s role in advancing rail projects in Michigan and actions that we may undertake.
