The Centennial Farm Program was begun in 1948 by the Michigan Historical Commission with support from local electrical power suppliers and farm groups.  Its purpose was to recognize farms that have remained in the same family for over 100 years. 

  • The Colombe farm in Standish Township is a Centennial Farm.  It was purchased in 1883.  The original buildings on the farm consisted of a saloon with rooms overhead, blacksmith shop, Hotel and Livery stables. It was a halfway house and stage coach stop.  It is located in Sections 4 and 5 of Standish Township, due east of the town of Standish.  (photoSubmitted by Burton Palmer.
