A trip to 3503 Avon St. is a walk back in time; the museum's winter hours are 1-3 p.m. on Sundays.
A trip to the Florence B. Dearing Museum, is a walk into Hartland’s past. Behind the “big green doors” at the museum, 3503 Avon St., are reminders both big and small of the area’s history. One of the first things people see is a wooden cabinet of post office boxes. And museum volunteers are quick to point out that the wooden floor bears oil stains from leaky fire engines. The oil stains are from the time the building served as the local government offices, and the fire station, said Treasurer Barbara Krueger, of the Hartland Area Historical Society. As the fire trucks became larger as years went by, they were stored in increasingly larger areas of the building. A unique item in the front of the museum is a Cromaine Crafts weaving loom. …

High school and middle school language students learned about world cultures during the annual event.
Elizabeth Mitchell of the Michigan Opera Theatre began studying voice when she was 16. Now she’s a mezzo-soprano singer — and opera singers don’t use microphones. Hartland High School students learned this and more during a Hartland World Language Week session Tuesday. This year’s World Language Week theme is “Express Yourself.” Students from Hartland Middle School at Ore Creek also attended the opera performance. Eighth-grader Austin Ballou had never seen opera, and it was completely different from what he expected, Ballou said. “They didn’t wear Viking hats, and I honestly thought they were using a microphone, but they weren’t. They were just really loud and high-pitched, in a good way.” The Michigan Opera Theatre singers’ performance …
