Now in its 57th year, the Michigan in Perspective conference will take place
at the Best Western Sterling Inn Banquet & Conference Center in Sterling
Heights on March 13 and 14, 2015. The largest of HSM's three conferences,
the Michigan in Perspective: The Local History Conference offers a diverse
view of Michigan's past and is open to anyone interested in state or
regional history. 

 

This year's keynote topics range from Belle Isle and the DIA to a look at
the 13th Amendment 150 years later and how the automobile has influenced
fashion. Participants will have the opportunity to attend 25 breakout
sessions that address local and statewide history, explore the Edsel and
Eleanor Ford House during the Friday evening reception, and visit with
history-related exhibitors.

Don't miss your chance to attend the Loosening the Laces historical fashion
show and reception!

 

>From the French voyageurs and colonials to the Civil War, Victorian and
Edwardian Ages to the decades of the 20th century, Michigan's history will
unfold with nearly 50 reenactors wearing the fashions of the eras. 

 

After the fashion show, attendees will have the chance to meet and mingle
with the reenactors at a reception to learn more about the fashions, eras,
and groups represented.

 

Spearheaded by the Historical Society of Michigan and Lynn Anderson,
Victoria Mobley, and Elaine Vermeersch of Fashion and the Automobile, this
brand-new event is a great opportunity to "meet" our state's history in
person.

 

Seating is limited, so sign up soon!
