TAHS January Program – Traverse City Transformed: From Industry to Recreation

Sunday, January 16th, 2:00-3:30. McGuire Room, TADL Woodmere branch.

This wide-ranging program weaves striking local art and historical photos with images of paintings from the Detroit Institute of Art.  The presentation gives clues as to how and why Traverse City has changed so much over the past 150 years. It is an expanded version of a 2019 program presented as part of Northwestern Michigan College’s Dennos Museum’s 2018 – 19 “Visions of American Life” exhibition, which was loaned from the DIA. 

Presenter Peg Siciliano has a Master’s Degree in American History with a Specialty in Archives from the College of William and Mary.  She is the past archivist of the TAHS, writes historical articles for the TC Record Eagle, and currently works for the Traverse City Area Public Schools.
