Detroit: Unique Street Names

woodwardDate: Wednesday, November 5
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Meeting Room

Many towns have an Elm Street, Washington Boulevard or Second Avenue. Setting Detroit apart are the recognizable names of streets like Woodward, Beaubien, Mount Elliot and Selden. Behind each of these monikers is a man or woman who played a part in Detroit’s past. This unique presentation uses everyday street signs to explore the 313 years of Detroit’s history and the story of the people whose legacy is traversed by citizens every day.

Presented by Joel Stone, senior curator for the Detroit Historical Society.
