November Monthly Gathering – A Fiddler, a Horse Farm and a Harvest of Ice: A Brief History of the Dixie Corridor

A critical route for over 500 years, the Saginaw Trail began as a Native American earthen walking path. Since European settlers began coming to the area in the 1800s, it has grown steadily into a concrete thoroughfare, including Woodward Avenue. It is also a part of the Dixie Highway, which stretches from Sault St. Marie all the way to Miami, Florida.

Join us on Saturday, October 20 at Northwest Unitarian Universalist Church in Southfield, when Oakland University Special Lecturer Carol Bacak-Egbo will guide us along a pathway into the past. Come learn about the fascinating history of 23 miles of the Dixie Highway which is now known as the “Dixie Corridor,” and the relevance of a fiddler, a horse farm and a harvest of ice. Doors open at 7pm. The program begins at 8pm.
