Lunch and Learn: Michigan in Transition (1820-1900)
Friday, February 17
Program: 10:30 am – Noon
Lunch: Noon - 1 pm
In 1820 Michigan's population was about 7500 people, mostly clustered near Detroit, Mackinac Island, and Sault Ste. Marie, and forests covered the State. By 1900 the population had grown to 2.4 million, and the vast forests had disappeared, converted to farmland and lumber. Matt Dykstra will discuss this transition and what forces drove this drastic change. Please register by February 15 for lunch.
