The Perry House is one of the oldest homestead type structures still standing in Genesee County. There are timbers in the basement ceiling that have been dated to the 1830's when the first cabin was built on the site by the Perry family. It seems the first white child in Genesee County was also born on this property. The group that became the Grand Blanc Historic District Commission saved this house from the wrecking ball about 10 years ago, and has been working on the house ever since. At this time, we have an open house twice a year, and May 20th is the date of the Spring Perry Pioneer Day. There will be tours of the house, viewing of an ongoing archeological dig, children activities, and access to walking trails on the property. Crafters and musicians are welcome, along with re-encators from the time period of about the 1830's to the 1930's. A Civil War encampment may also be on the property that day, along with antique cars and farm equipment.
