Remarks & Notes 
Circling 300 years of Americana. Shortly after departing Susquehanna Station, Weiser Railroad Locomotive #1 "Edison" hauls the Greenfield Village shuttle train past the Farris Windmill, one of many unique structures from all around America, which have been transplanted into this picturesque creation of Mr. Henry Ford. First opened in 1929, the Greenfield Village, in Dearborn, Michigan, is a museum representing 300 years of Americana. Here, you'll find Thomas Edison's Menlo Park Laboratories, the Wright Brothers Bicycle Shop, a pottery shop, a glass factory, an early machine shop, working farms, a mill, and a myriad of other artifacts and structures representing the history of innovation and technology in the US. The village has roads, complete with a fleet of Model T Automobiles that you can ride in. And of course, it has its own railroad, which circles the entire park every 30 minutes. Oh, and the windmill seen here? It was transplanted all the way from Cape Cod, and is likely one of the oldest surviving windmills in the US.
