  3. The Homer Historical Society was organized as a bicentennial project in 1974 to preserve and protect Homer history, to educate people about the significance of local history and to establish a museum. http://homerhistoricalsociety.org/ Meetings are held the last Wednesday of the month from January through October. In warm weather they are held at the Blair Farm. The Blair Historical Farm—at 26445 M-60 East, one mile east of Homer on M-60—is a pioneer family farm built on land owned by Maude Blair's grandfather, Dr. George Blair, Homer’s first doctor. Miss Blair, a long time Detroit schoolteacher and administrator, was especially interested in having children learn about Homer history. Her sister, Miss Bess Blair, was also a teacher. Now, elementary school students visit Blair Historical Farm every spring to learn about local history and see how people used to live on a farm.
