Samuel Painter was considered a pioneer by the Davison Area Historical Society.  Long before the society existed Sam coauthored a book on Davison History and had done extensive research on the area.

Sam volunteered for the society for many years, staffing the museums and assisting people with research.  His favorite time of the year was in the spring when Davison’s second grade classes visited Kitchen School to experience an “old fashioned” school day.

On Thursday, March 10, 2016 Sam went to join his Lord.  He will be remembered as a kind, intelligent, respected gentleman.  Our loss is heaven’s gain.


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.


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.
