I hitched a ride with Karen Withers from the Millington Museum to go to this workshop, Karen ended up being really nice and living just down the street from me. The drive wasn't as bad as I thought, Port Sanilac Michigan wasn't as far, it just sounds that way.
We sat at a table with David McDonald & Leila Misico of the Ten Cent Horse Barn in Ubly, Michigan. Here is a pdf of a brochure they are in.
The Workshop was held at the Sanilac County Historical Museum & Historic Village, 228 S. Ridge Street, Port Sanilac, Michigan 48469. The first thing we saw was a giant beautiful yellow home, and when we pulled in the driveway, lots of buildings on the property.
There were a couple speakers that really stood out for me and one was Ken Brock the Restoration guy. He had lots of pictures showing his range of expertise and his love of historic preservation.
Another speaker that really stood out for me was Kate Van Auken, Cass City Historical & Genealogy Society. Kate gave a presentation on, "Cemetery Walk: A How-To For Your Community". I took notes as best I could on this one, that is how great she made it sound.
All in all it was a good day and I liked every bit from beginning to end, I hope I get to go to another one.
We are a non-profit organization in Michigan featuring a train depot, caboose, school house, log cabin. Our files are jam packed with pictures and info galore.
