Downtown Northville - Timeless...with a Twist
Imagine the timeless things you would have encountered as you strolled Downtown in 1950, like the smell of freshly baked bread wafting out the bakery on Main Street, bicycles with baskets on the handlebars, the mayor walking down the front steps of City Hall, kids on the sidewalks laughing with ice cream cones in hand, and your neighbors waving to you from Town Square on Friday evening as music fills the night air.


Take all of this tradition and hometown feel and add a little twist of…sophisticated art galleries, wine shops, the latest fashions, and the culinary delights you have come to expect as a discerning Downtown patron.


The best of all worlds, this is Downtown Northville.
