Rochester Hills Museum Cabin Fever Lecture Series Presents: The WPA’s Travel Books of the 1930s

7pm - 8pm. The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm - Calf Barn. Presented by Jim Craft, local Historian. Explore Michigan through the words of The Federal One Project, a part of the New Deal program aimed at producing a snapshot of American life – literary critics across the country showered them with almost universal applause. While all sections of the book contain fascinating stories about American life in the 1930s, the tours remain valuable guides to the country in a time before the interstate highway system - when America was heavily rural and traditional values from a pre- industrial age still abounded. Using these books to find the residue of that era is an experience that can make a road trip in Michigan, or any other state, much more rewarding.

Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm Presents: Earth Day Movie Celebration – Inhabitants: Indigenous Perspectives on Restoring Our World

7pm-8:30pm. The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm – Calf Barn, 1005 Van Hoosen Road, off Tienken Road between Rochester and Dequindre Roads. Inhabitants: Indigenous Perstpectives on Restoring our World follows five Native American communities as they restore their traditional land management practices in the face of a changing climate. For millennia Native Americans successfully stewarded and shaped their landscapes, but centuries of colonization have disrupted their ability to maintain these processes. From deserts, coastlines, forests, mountains, and prairies, Native communities across the US are restoring their ancient relationships with the land. The five stories include sustaining traditions of Hopi dryland farming in Arizona; restoring buffalo to the Blackfeet reservation in Montana; maintaining sustainable forestry on the Menominee reservation in Wisconsin; reviving native food forests in Hawaii; and returning prescribed fire to the landscape by the Karuk Tribe of California. As the climate crisis escalates, these time-tested practices of North America's original inhabitants are becoming increasingly essential in a rapidly changing world. (Length: 76 minutes) Cost: Free for Museum Members; Public $8 Adults, $5 Senior/Student

Rochester-Avon Historical Society: Avon in the Civil War

7pm. Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Road. Join RAHS member and American Civil War researcher Chris Brown for this in-depth dive into Avon’s representation at the Civil War’s most intense fights as he covers all of these topics and more with a local flair that will tell just how impressively involved the community really was in America’s darkest hours. In 1860, Avon Township was a relatively sleepy farming community; dotted with mills, farmhouses, barns, and a main street lined with blacksmith shops, livery stables, hotels, and other establishments common to a mid-19th century Michigan village. In 1861, when shots were fired on Fort Sumter, Avon’s sons answered Abraham Lincoln’s call for troops and enlisted to defend a broken union. Hear the stories of these men, from the brothers who paid the last full measure of sacrifice at Williamsburg, to the brothers-in-law who never made it home from Andersonville, to the boys who fought at places like the Wheatfield at Gettysburg and Snodgrass Hill at Chickamauga. Avon men participated in almost every major battle of the Civil War. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

May the legacy of our community be to uphold this unforgettable tradition, bring teachable moments to our children, and raise awareness about the meaning of Memorial Day.

Approximately 20 parade entries including fire trucks, a marching band, and more will line up in the parking lot at Van Hoosen Middle School on Monday, May 30, 2022.

Today however, many play an informal backyard game on bumpy lawns with nine wickets.

This is a FREE, outdoor family program, yet registration is required so we know how many croquet sets to have on hand, and if you have your own set, even better. Join in if you would like to watch others play, learn the game, and listen to some music. To reserve your spot, please contact the Historic District Commission office via email or phone call: 248-608-6807 and bbarber@oaklandtownship.org.
