Our museum's website
« on: April 12, 2016, 01:15:18 AM »
The local museum, at which I'm an active volunteer / committee member, has established its own website. It's still being developed but I'm posting the link here for your info. ( We can also be found on Facebook, Twitter and Tripadvisor )

Ian, I could think of worse ways spending my free time. Looks like a lot of fun and rewarding hobby to boot.  8) ;)

Ian,

Thank you for taking the time to volunteer at your local museum. Educating people is a passion of yours and what better place to do it in. You have a passion for this type of history as well..

Good for you

  Great looking site Ian, how ironic that your museum and mine both have such a close relationship with the railroad. We literally sit on an old interurban line for the Detroit United Railway (D.U.R.), which is on our property to the rear of the building. In front down the center of the street, albeit covered was the competing Michigan Traction Line (M.U.R.) and directly across from that is the Michigan Central Railroad line, which is still in operation under AMTRAK. We own Car 29 which is a 1914 all steel interurban car of the M.U.R. whose founder was a Grass Lake native. Yesterday we purchased another car, #154, to use for parts in the restoration of Car 29. We also have the fully restored Michigan Central Depot, which is one of the most photographed in the country. I will get our new site up soon as well!   Scott.

   
Always looking for 32nd Division items and 13th Armored Division items. Please keep me in mind if you have any.

Hi Scott. The turn of the 20th century railway station building we (partly) occupy is the hub of the Heritage Railway which runs vintage trains at intervals throughout the year...on the old Great Western Railway line. The railway buffs who ride the trains would probably go nuts for your old American railwayana!!
