Virtual Event! Centennial Press Conference

June 22 2021 | 11:00am to 12:00pm

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Detroit Historical Society! In 1921, several prominent Detroiters founded the Detroit Historical Society, meant to preserve the history of their booming industrial town. For 100 years, the Society has encouraged historical scholarship, preservation and education. Today, the Society manages the Dossin Great Lakes Museum and Detroit Historical Museum while caring for a collection of more than 250,000 historical artifacts.

Tune in on facebook at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 22 for the virtual start to our centennial anniversary. 

President and CEO Elana Rugh will join Board Chairman John Decker and other Detroit Historical Society staff to kick off a year and a half of celebrations. Help us look back as we look forward to our next 100 years.
