Brownstown Historical Society has been serving the community for the past 25 years. We’ve made our own history during that time from renovating the DuChene Farmhouse, now home to our historical museum, to leading a team to relocate and upgrade the “War of 1812 Battle of Brownstown Monument” now a major feature inside the Lake Erie Metropark, along with so many other projects.

In celebrating our 25 years, we’ve planned some special projects that YOU can be a part of! In May, we are going to install a Little Free Library in front of the museum. Stop by this summer, grab a book and relax on the porch of the museum. We will also be installing a commemorative brick paver area in front of the museum. Do you have someone you’d like to honor or remember with a special brick paver? Visit our facebook page or call Debbie Galik at 248-318-5297 for more information about the little free library “unveiling” and the commemorative brick paver program.
