Remnants of Manchester's glory days are still discernable in its well-preserved streetscape and elegant private homes. The River Raisin (named after the wild grapes that grew along its banks), spawned three dams that powered mills and factories. Trains came in every half hour from one of the two railroad lines passing through Manchester. As new forms of production and transportation replaced river and rail travel during the 20th century, Manchester's glory days ended, but it has continued as an agricultural and industrial center with a strong sense of history.
Travel to such sites as the Manchester Mill, the Whistle Stop, and Old Village Hall. Please see the website for more information.
