Historic Charlton Park: Village, Museum and Recreation Area is a historically oriented local facility of Barry County, Michigan that sits on 310 acres (1.3 km2) along the Thornapple River.

The village is made up of a number of nineteenth and early-twentieth century structures that have been brought together from around the county to recreate a Michigan village from the turn of the 20th century. Buildings include a lawyer’s home, blacksmith shop, bank and insurance office, barber shop, inn and stagecoach stop, Church, carpenter/cooper shop, carriage house, general store, hardware store, school, print shop, cabin, sawmill, and the Hastings Township Hall. Currently, the 1849 mission house located on the property, known as Indian Landing, is being excavated by a local university.

Besides the historic village and museum, there is a swimming beach on the Thornapple River, along which the park is located.
