Connecting Communities: Roads, Bridges & People
This exhibit celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Washtenaw County Road Commission. The story was written by Grace Shackman and first appeared in the September issue of the Ann Arbor Observer. Her words are also on the exhibit panels illustrated with photographs from the Commission, the Ann Arbor District Library, and the Bentley Historical Library. The road commission provided the tools, lights, artifacts, photographs, hard hats, maps, and equipment. The Washtenaw County Historical Society was happy to host and design the exhibit, contribute artifacts from our collection and collaborate with the WCRC to create this fun and family-friendly experience.
