Grand River: From Detroit to Lake Michigan
Tuesday, April 25, 6:30pm
Even if you’ve always lived in Michigan, you may not realize that Grand River Avenue is the Route 66 of Michigan.
It starts at the Detroit Athletic Club and winds westward through Lansing and Grand Rapids, ending up in Muskegon. Over time, it has served as a stagecoach route, a plank road, and ultimately, one of America’s first two-lane highways. Jon and Gail take you on a road trip, sharing lively history through architectural finds, interesting food, and fun stories. They’ll even solve a few mysteries, like how Redford got its name, ‘Lasher’ vs.‘Lahser” and how the town of Novi got its name (careful – it’s not what you think!)
Please register online or call 248-887-2218 x3.
This program will be held in person with a Zoom option if you'd like to listen in from home!

Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia
