The Meridian Historical Village and the importance of knowing local history

OKEMOS — Finding a historical village in Michigan is pretty uncommon, but not for Meridian Township. The Meridian Historical Village in Okemos “was established as a private non-profit organization in 1974,” according to their website. Because this village has been around for so many years, it has had a positive impact on the community from education to attraction of tourists through their events. “[The Meridian Historical Village] protects and preserves the local history. We have an archive, and we have all sorts of resources here that can help not just students but community members also,” said Jane Rose, the executive director of the historical village.
