As the sun dips below Coopersville Farm Museum and Event Center’s grain silo, local musicians gather in the high-ceilinged hall against the backdrop of patchwork quilts and antique farm tools. They sing gospel, country, and folk songs that have been passed down for generations. Events such as these are one facet of the museum’s mission to honor and uphold rural traditions. In addition to the monthly jam sessions, the 12,000-square-foot facility hosts quilting circles, line dancing, and other skill-swapping events. Curators spotlight the region’s agrarian past by recruiting antique-farming tools and folk art and freeing hopelessly lost scarecrows from corn mazes. In addition to shining a light on the region’s past, the museum strives to support current culture makers; The hall serves as a gallery space for local artists, and during the youth-led Kids’ Day local teens teach tykes creative skills.

At Engine House No. 5 Fire Museum, visitors learn about the history of the area's first responders, as they explore a collection of vintage fire-fighting gear, some of which dates back to the late 1600s. The Building: In 1880, this brick building was built and stood in downtown Grand Rapids for 100 years. When a new firestation was planned in 1980, it was disassembled, brick by brick, and reassembled in Allendale to house this history museum. Eye Catcher: A fleet of vintage fire engines, including a 1936 hand-pumped engine Permanent Mainstay: A collection of leather buckets, which were the only way to supply water to the fire engines until the early 1800s?some of these buckets were crafted in the late 17th century Crown Jewel: One fully-restored Eureka hose cart, complete with a 24-karat-gold inlay From the Press: According to Fox17, "These fire trucks are truly something that would be seen at the Henry Ford Museum in Greenfield Village in pristine condition."
