Event Details

Most people with an interest in local history are aware that settlers to Michigan during the territorial and early statehood period (1820-1850) came primarily from western New York. What few realize is that during this period western New York (aka the Burned-over District) was the epicenter of the religious revival known as the Second Great Awakening and the social and political reform that significantly impacted the course of American History throughout the 19th and well into the 20th Century. Join speaker Jim Craft on to hear about this fascinating and little known piece of Michigan’s rich history.
