Please join us on Saturday, October 17th from 11 am to 2 pm for a celebration of Autumn.  Crafts, games, movies and treats will all be part of the fun taking place at the Williams Site Museum which will be hauntingly decorated for fall.  Donations to the museum will be rewarded with a chance to win prizes one of which is a backpack filled with items for an enjoyable hike through the Williams Woodland trails.  We need volunteers to help with this event and share the fun.


The Williams site museum hours will be from 1 to 5 pm on Saturday, October 24th to coincide with the township’s “Wonderfully Wicked Woods” event. When visiting the museum, enjoy munching on popcorn while watching PG rated Halloween movies.  Play games, make crafts, win prizes and enjoy the autumn woods.


The scent of fresh evergreens and hot cider will fill the air during the Historical Society’s Christmas Open House at the Williams site museum on December 19th from 1 to 4 pm.  Enjoy a holiday movie in the  theatre, watch a pioneer craft demonstration, play games and savor treats which would have been familiar to the settlers.  Hand crafted gifts will be available on a donation basis.  Please join us and experience Christmas in a pioneer fashion.  This event will coincide with the township’s “Williams Winter Wonderland” celebration.


After years of waiting to be displayed the restored 1910 ca. “Rockaway Coupe” carriage has finally found a home in the Historical Society’s Williams Site Museum.


As a historical society we feel very fortunate to live in a community that realizes the importance of preserving it’s history and by doing so establishing the area’s identity.  Because of the hard work and foresight of many individuals and the generosity of the City of Davison and Davison Township we have been able to collect, preserve and display information and artifacts that would otherwise be lost to time.  Please consider volunteering to help continue this effort.
