General Information

Description - Cambridge State Historic Park is the site of Walker Tavern, a major stopping place for stagecoaches traveling between Detroit and Chicago in the mid-19th century. The site is located at the intersection of the Detroit-Chicago Road and the Monroe Pike at Cambridge Junction. The stagecoach ride from Detroit to Chicago was a rugged five-day journey. Walker Tavern served as a welcome respite offering hot meals, overnight accommodations, and political talk.

Attractions - Today, Walker Tavern offers the visitor sights of a reproduction barn with interpretive exhibits depicting Michigan's frontier settlement and stagecoach days between 1836 and 1855. The historic site is open from May through October. Call 517-467-7401 for details.
