SAVE THE DATE: Researching Your Home's History!

Brick + Beam Event

10:00am on Mar 28 2020

Burton Historical Collection, 5201 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48202

Do you have an older home? Do you wonder how to learn more about it's past? 

Join us at the Burton Historical Collection to learn more about researching your older home or commercial building. Don't worry-- your home doesn't have to be designated as historic to have a history!

What we'll cover: 

  • An overview of the Burton Historical Collection from a Librarian

  • Group sessions and hands-on research with Sanborne Maps, Directories, and Card Catalogs

  • Navigating other resources at the City & County where you can look up property records

B+BD, Preservation Detroit, the City of Detroit, and Book Suey will be there to help you use the resources.  

Stay tuned for more info on the workshop's agenda and how to RSVP!
