The City archives are incomplete, particularly from 1900-1915, and we would appreciate receiving information to help fill in some of the blanks this has created. If you have newspapers, official data, or other records from this time period that contains City information, please contact City Hall at 517-655-2774. Even if it is ‘just’ a letter with an official’s title or signature, it may help us reconstruct the history a bit better! We’d be happy to make copies to complete our records, and return your originals to you unharmed if you so desire.
