Sourcing Local History Topics: How to Find Historical Tales

Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm 1005 Van Hoosen Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48306

On Thursday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m., the Rochester-Avon Historical Society welcomes local author Gerald Van Dusen at the Rochester Hills Museum on Van Hoosen Farm. Sometimes you have to do field research that includes interviewing informants (see Van Dusen's books, Detroit's Birwood Wall, Sojourner Truth Housing Riots), but sometimes, the topics come to you (Detroit's Lost Stove Industry). Learn how Van Dusen has dug up some of Michigan’s more interesting historical tales.

This event is free for RAHS members. Nonmembers are asked to consider a $5 suggested donation at the door. Registration is required. Register here by tapping "Get Tickets Now," sending an email to or call 248-266-5440.
