11th Annual History Detectives, January 20
History Detectives is a week away! Time to take a look at the programs and plan your day. Starting at 9:30am, the morning set includes a history of Madison Square Church and the surrounding business district, a historical charting of Grand Rapids women’s runs for public office beginning in 1887 (at 10:30am), and a survey of historical markers (at 11:30am). Following the lunch break, the afternoon set leads with African Americans in Early Grand Rapids (at 1:00pm), a look at the Voigt family clothing dating from the 1890s through the 1970s (at 2:00pm), and an early history of the Creston neighborhood (at 3:00pm). There is a little something for everyone – come for one program, or stay all day! View the full brochure here.
