KITCHEN SCHOOL TOURS

Seven classes from the Davison School District were able to step back in time and experience an old fashioned day of school at the historic Kitchen School.  Thank you to Kim Shade, Basil Merrill and Marion Callis for making the children’s visit both fun and educational.

WILLIAMS SITE TOURS

Twenty eight classes plus six scout groups visited the museum this spring as part of their experience at the 100 acre woods.  Thank you to Debbie Koski and Terry Wolfe who hosted the events and enjoyed the visits as much as the groups.

GARDEN SITES

Thank you to the Genesee Green Team for maintaining the Kitchen School gardens.  Museum members Debbie Koski, Judy Bernethy and Terry Wolfe have been working in the Williams site and the City site gardens.  Flowers were donated in memory of Pat Shannon and four large pots and three window boxes were planted at the Williams site and four pots filled at the City site.  Memories of Patricia will bloom along with the flowers.

HANDY WOLFE

Terry Wolfe has become the Society’s handy man. What a great guy! Thanks Terry!

SIGNS, SIGNS EVERYWHERE

WILLIAMS SITE TRAILS

Township workers have been busy working on the trails in the 100 acre woods.  A bridge will soon connect the existing paths to the newly created routes on the opposite side of Kearsley Creek.  A great variety of wild flowers bloom along these trails offering an enjoyable opportunity to learn more about our areas botanical treasures.

IT IS HERE!!!

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. Please plan a visit soon.
