Greenwald Herkimer House

 
The Greenwald/Herkimer home was built on 80 acres of land near the intersection of Pardee and Eureka Road and was used as a farm, producing hay, potatoes, corn and wheat. Frank and Anna Greenwald and their neighbors constructed the farmhouse out of the finest lumber available. The Greenwald’s raised their three daughters in the home and hosted a reunion each Labor Day. Christmas was an especially beautiful time of year in the home, which is accented with Gingerbread-style trim and ornate woodwork. Edna Herkimer, Frank and Anna Greenwald’s daughter, and her husband, Ralph, occupied the home until 1988 when it was moved to Heritage Park and restored to its original state. Presently, Maggie’s Sweet Shoppe and the Luminaria candle shop occupy the historic home.

Maggie's Sweet Shop is a favorite stop for many Heritage Park patrons. Featuring HERSHEY’S hand-dipped ice cream, a variety of candy, chocolates and country-fresh fudge, makes Maggie’s Sweet Shop a haven for those with a sweet tooth. They also carry Kowalski hot dogs, sausages and Coke products. Maggie's boasts that they make the thickest milk-shakes in town!

Maggie's Sweet Shop is owned and operated by Al Wilson. (734)287-1060. 

Old-Fashioned charm and a general store atmosphere will await you. The proprietors have commented that they enjoy the comments people make when they come in and discover some kind of candy they have not had since they were kids. They also give away free rainbow sprinkles on their ice cream if you quack like a duck …. It has been quite noisy in their shop at times as most kids love sprinkles!
Hours are seasonal with spring and summer hours 12-8PM and fall hours will vary as the season progresses, so please call 734-287-1060 to hear our recording. Please come and visit and step back in time to enjoy the charm of a by-gone-era. *Sugar free chocolates and low-fat/no sugar ice cream available.
