Lost Dearborn and Before Fair Lane Book Signing

Dearborn Historian Craig Hutchison will be at the Made Metro Collective store at 22275 Michigan Avenue on December 16th to sign copies of his newest book “Lost Dearborn.”

Hutchison’s “Lost Dearborn” shares 80 photos and extensive history about various former Dearborn landmarks and businesses.

Glenn O’Kray will also be at the Made Metro Collective to sign copies of his newest “Before Fair Lane” about early Dearborn homes.

Official description of Lost Dearborn:
“Throughout its existence, Dearborn has been a pioneer settlement, a multicultural hub, a college town, a major tourism center and a world-renowned industrial city. Unfortunately, due to a variety of factors, significant structures have been lost to time. Almost all of the eleven U.S. Arsenal complex buildings have disappeared since the arsenal was closed in 1875. The hallways of the Edison School and Oxford School still live on in the hearts of their students but were razed long ago. Even beloved edifices such as the Ford Rotunda and the Ford Motor Company Administration building, built by Dearborn’s favorite son, Henry Ford, are now only a memory. Author Craig E. Hutchison endeavors to immortalize the important foundational building blocks of an evolving city.”

  1. I was born, raised, married, raised two sons and worked in Dearborn. We retired and moved to Florida 4 years ago. I’d like to know where I can purchase your books. My son is interested in our family background including his great great aunt Mary Selinske (Selinsky)who lived with Eleanor Woodworth. I’m sure your books will be of interest to him.
