Second Saturday
"Linwood Ice House Museum"
with Rachael Walsh
1:00pm 
 

 

  One hundred years ago this 320-square-foot building in Linwood held ice for cooling, and in 1980 it was turned into a library by our presenter's father, Frank Walsh. When later owners proposed demolishing the structure Rachael Walsh raised the funds to move it to its current locatoon in Linwood's Bicentennial Park. Join her as she shares the story of the ice house and ongoing efforts to restore it and preserve its unique history.

Second Saturday
"Lips that Touch Liquor Shall Never Touch Mine! : How Michigan's Ladies Put an End to Demon Rum"
with Dr. Katherine Ellison
1:00pm 

 

 With Michigan's proximity to Canada and ample waterways for illegal liquor trafficking and moonshine operations, women involved in the Temperance Movement here had a harder fight than most, forcing them to seek help from well-known advocates like Carrie Nation. Join Dr. Ellison for an exciting discussion of women's role in limiting and banning intoxicating liquors in the Great Lakes State. Note: This presentation will take place at the Delta College Planetarium, 100 Center Avenue, Bay City in conjuction with Michigan History Day finals.
