Windmill Tour in Saline
A bus with an on-board guide will take you from the depot museum to the Rentschler Farm 1265 E. Michigan Ave. and to the Braun Farm 1955 Bemis Road, all within five miles. You will view five windmills of various time periods, an Eclipse, an Aeromotor, a Saline Standard, an unnamed antique farm windmill, and a new power generating wheel. Visitors can also bike, jog, or drive their own car from one site to another. The depot and the farm buildings will be open, as well as the farm gift shop. The first 100 children will receive a pinwheel and a stick candy at the farm. An ongoing Sing-A-Long with old time songs will take place in the upper hay barn. Come one, come all. This is FREE.

More About Saline Railroad Depot Museum
The Saline Railroad Depot Museum still sits on its original site. In the freight room-turned-museum, it also features a freight house, telegraph and passenger facilities. Operated by the Saline Area Historical Society, the depot is four blocks north of downtown, set back off North Ann Arbor Street, tucked behind a party store. The land is owned by the City of Saline and the building was given to the Saline Historic District Commission by David and Dean Zahn. The Depot Museum is open Saturdays for browsing and guided tours. If the railroad lights are flashing, the depot is open. Groups larger than 10 require a reservation.
