Flat Rock Historical Society is hosting their 5th annual Diggin’ Up Local History Walk on September 24th-25th, 2021.
This year’s event will feature presenters dressed in period dress who will portray historical figures with Michigan connections. These short presentations aim to be historically accurate while incorporating macabre and sometimes comical stories of their lives. Wandering spirits in period dress will be on campus for photo ops. Ticket holders will enjoy a walk back through time learning tidbits of little known history.
Join us as we “dig up” some fun, and educational entertainments such as, Victorian Funeral Customs presented in Langs-Wagar House, sponsored by Bobcean Funeral Home. Curious about ghost hunting? The Michigan Paranormal Seeker Society will be onsite to chat with event attendees. In addition to character stories, the event will also include basket raffles and complimentary refreshments.
The 2021 Diggin’ Up Local History event is sponsored by Meijer, Crest Ford, Biggby Coffee, Milkins Jewelers, Blue Heron Trading, Apple Charlies Cider Mill, Janet’s Closet, Fiorelli’s Restaurant Collection, Rose Family Construction, National Museum of the Great Lakes and many other local businesses.
The event will be held on the campus of the Flat Rock Historical Museum located at 25486 Gibraltar Rd. on FRIDAY, September 24th & SATURDAY, September 25th. Tours start at 7 p.m. both nights and will run every half hour until 9pm. Tickets are limited in number to provide the best opportunity to social distance while allowing everyone access to hear the presenters.
