Sunday, May 17 Alpine Township Historical Commission Open House
Alpine Township Historical Commission invites everyone to come and enjoy our Museum. Displays are changed often, so if you have been in the museum before, come and look at what is new.
If you have any military pictures that you would like to add to our extensive collection, please bring them and any information you have on the person who served our country. We can scan the photo/s right there and send it home with you! Our goal is to include every person who served our country on the military wall.
Doors open at 2 p.m. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. The Alpine Township Historic Museum is located 3 miles west of Alpine Ave., at 2410 Seven Mile Rd.
Father's Day, June 21
The third Sunday of June is always Father's Day, so we do not hold an open house. We encourage everyone to consider a way to honor their father. If you are having a family gathering and there are 4 generations present, please take a photo and share it with the Alpine Township Historical collection of 4-generation photos. Call us at (616) 784-1262 to make arrangements to share your photos. You are invited to our office at 2015 Seven Mile Road to see our collection of 4-generation photos from families in Alpine Township.
Sunday July 19 and August 16
Many people are off on vacations during the summer, but if you are in the Alpine Township area and would like to look into your family's history, stop in at the Alpine Township Historical Commission's office at 2015 Seven Mile Road.
