Project 1893: Artifacts from the Great Saginaw Fire - Exhibit
On May 20, 1893, a fire ravaged the city of Saginaw and destroyed more than 250 buildings in less than three hours. In the summer and fall of 2011, Castle Museum Archaeologist Jeff Sommer and a team of volunteers worked at a site that was the remains of a home destroyed in the fire. The museum has an exhibit examining the Great Fire in more detail with particular emphasis on the artifacts our archaeology team uncovered. This is a fascinating piece of Saginaw history that you won't want to miss. 10am - 4pm. For more information contact (989) 752-2861.
