A New Exhibit: Dearborn in The Civil War

Coming April 5th, 2014

Make plans now to attend the grand opening of the next exhibit at the Dearborn Historical Museum. To celebrate the sesquicentennial of 1864, the DHM is joining forces with the Sons of Union Veterans to tell the story of what was happening locally at the Detroit Arsenal at Dearbornville in the context of the larger conflict. The stories of local residents who fought will be told through stimulating visual and 3-D materials. There will be displays at both the McFadden-Ross House and the Commandant’s Quarters. The Sons of Union Veterans will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The festivities begin on April 5th at 1:00 p.m. If you have questions, please call the DHM office at 313-565-3000.
