Michigan Railroad History Conference, October 17

The Clarke Historical Library has a bevy of resources related to the history of railroads in Michigan ranging from the papers of the Ann Arbor Rail Road Technical and Historical Association and Captain Wm. Bacon's papers documenting the Ann Arbor Rail Road car ferries, to the promotional brochures of the Pere Marquette and Grand Rapids and Indiana Railways. We are happy to announce that on Saturday, October 17, 2015, the 13th Michigan Railroad History Conference (MRHC) will take place. This event will be held at the Lansing Community College, West Campus, in Lansing, Michigan.

The program includes field trips to Owosso and St. Johns, and an afterglow at Clara's (an old railway station in Lansing). For further information, please contact the MRHC registrar at You can find updates about the event posted on the Conference website in the coming weeks and months via this link.
