Get A View From The Top Of Old Traverse City

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN: The History Center of Traverse City (HCTC) unveils two new exhibits on Wednesday, May 1st “Traverse History From Above” aerial photos from the 1920’s through the 1970’s (media photos available upon request). Take this step back in time, and you will also have the opportunity to view the HCTC's major new traveling exhibit: "The Grand Traverse Region: Vibrant Reinvention." experience the launch of this full, sweeping review of our area's history!

The aerial exhibit covers areas including: The State Hospital, Front Street, Bay front, Central Neighborhood, Civic Center area, Iron works and with other amazing shots.

“The traveling exhibit was professionally designed, "Vibrant Reinvention," and was made possible with a major grant from the Michigan Humanities Council”, said Peg Siciliano, Archivist. “Each of its 12 panels explores a separate topic, such as "School Days," "Commerce and Shopping," or "Culture and the 'Good Life', said Siciliano. This exhibit can be displayed as a whole, or each panel can stand on its own. Individual panels will be available for display at local business and institutions. In an innovative offer, such organizations can arrange for the History Center to research and design an additional "partner panel" which will examine that specific organization's place in our community's history. Anyone interested in this opportunity can contact the History Center.

These exhibits will be featured through Memorial weekend when the Lego “Building Blocks” exhibit returns and is open Wednesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm. Don’t miss Children’s fun includes: excavating for fossils, copper ingots and arrowheads in 2,000 pounds of cherry pits and exploring hands-on the train and logging industry in our Children’s Cupola.

“We are focused on a family friendly education experience for families, students and visitors interested in our wonderful local history”; stated Bill Kennis – Executive Director of the History Center.

Exhibit open daily. Wednesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm through Memorial weekend then 7 days a week until Labor Day. Cost is $5 for all guests, age 4 and under free. History Center, 322 Sixth Street Traverse City, Michigan 49684 (231) 995-0313, www.traversehistory.org.
