Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site, the Lincoln Home in Springfield,
the Lincoln Tomb in Oak Ridge Cemetery, and much more! Your guide will be

all of our tours, we've planned every detail ourselves-no "off the rack"
tours for us!

all dinners and breakfasts plus one sack lunch on the bus; lodgings; and all

Finding Home: The Settlement of Chief Waukazoo's Band


During an era of Native-American removal policies, delicate treaties, and
immense social pressures, an Odawa community traveled along the west coast
of Michigan in the 1830s and 1840s in search of a permanent home in their
traditional homelands. Join presenter Eric Hemenway at our State History
Conference in Holland from September 22-24 to learn how complicated a
journey their movement truly was.

Band or our other great sessions and keynotes? Check out our State History
Conference flyer and registration form to learn more about joining us for

The State History Conference moves to a different location each year. This
conference celebrates all aspects of Michigan's history and offers a
close-up look at the heritage of the host area, which for 2017 is Holland,
Michigan. Take a tour through historic downtown Holland, learn more about
the DeZwaan windmill and the Holland Museum, and experience a wide plethora
of workshops and keynotes tailored to West Michigan.  


The State History Awards are also presented during the conference. Each
year, the Historical Society of Michigan presents a State History Award to
those individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions
to the appreciation and understanding of Michigan history.
