We had a capacity crowd for the History Detectives program on Sat, Jan 22nd. The event was co-sponsored by the Grand Rapids Public Library with the GR Historical Society, GR Historical Commission, Western Michigan Genealogical Society, GR Public Museum, the GR Civil War Roundtable, the Kutsche Office of Local History and the Greater GR Womens’ History Council. Six presentations were offered in the day-long event. participants learned about the history of Ramona Park, curiosities of Heritage Hill, early transportation in Grand Rapids, Michiganders’ experiences in the Civil War, Civil War treasures rediscovered, and the early suffrage movement in Grand Rapids. If you missed it, you missed out!
