Museum's 2016 Season is Over

The Gardner House Museum ended the 2016 tour season on Sunday, September 25.  What this actually means is that our volunteers won't be there on weekends waiting to give tours.  If, however, you would like to tour the museum, simply call 517-629-5100 to schedule a personal tour.  The museum will be open again in 2017 from 2-4 p.m. Mothers' Day weekend until the last weekend of September.

Albion Historical Society Speaker Series: Tales of Michigan in the Civil War

Civil War buffs and anyone interested in the nineteenth century history of Michigan won’t want to miss the second installment of the AHS Fall/Winter Speaker Series.  Civil War researcher and collector Bob Griggs will be sharing little-known stories of Michigan’s involvement in the conflict and how Michiganians experienced life both inside and outside of the Union Army.  

Bob is an active member of Austin Blair Camp No. 7 of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in Jackson and speaks regularly on various topics relating to the “War Between the States.” 

The talk will be held Wednesday, November 9, from 2-4pm, in the Albion District Library’s Naomi Lane Room (upstairs).  The event is free and open to the public, and no registration is required.
