Upcoming History Events

Cemetery Tour / 150th Anniversary of the Midland Cemetery

SAT, OCT 28, 2023 / 12 - 1:40 PM (Timed Entry Every 20 Minutes)
at Midland City Cemetery  (3200 Orchard Dr., Midland, MI)

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Midland Cemetery in its current location with a guided tour of the oldest portions. By the time the current cemetery was created in 1873 the county was 18 years old and the village of Midland already had cemetery. Come learn why our citizens chose to move the cemetery and hear some stories about Midlanders who had to be evicted from their original grave sites and reinterned at the cemetery. This event is held rain or shine. Be sure to check out the Halloween Bash at the Center as well!

Capital Airlines Flight 67
Step back in time with local historian Floyd Andrick for an in-depth "Brunch History" look at Capital Airlines Flight 67.

Mr. Andrick will present photos and unique first-hand accounts of this tragic accident. Join us for another Brunch History as we delve into this remarkable chapter of our community's past!
