"Tune In" to Weekly Lectures

Our popular History Hounds Lectures Series is a fan-favorite membership benefit. Each week on alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we offer a one-hour lecture on a history topic presented by a wide variety of historians and content experts from across Michigan and beyond. Past topics have included military history, shipwrecks and other maritime topics, famous people from Michigan's past, nostalgic blasts from the past like the history of Faygo pop, and so much more.
