Whitehall, Michigan Sesquicentennial

Let the birthday celebration begin! Whitehall, Michigan has reached the 150 year milestone.

Beginning on Jan. 11, 2010 with a mayoral proclamation acknowledging the formal recording of the plat for the Village of Mears (now the city of Whitehall) on January 10, 1860, festivities will continue throughout the year. Each month of the year will feature unique Sesquicentennial events, lectures, workshops, exhibits, tours, parties and so much more.

Jan. 11 kick-off reception will be at the Nufer home on Mears Ave. The oldest residence in the city seems a fitting spot to begin the year-long celebration. On Feb. 3 will be a lecture on the Lewis House at the White Lake Community Library. The Lewis House is a stately historic home on Mears Ave with an interesting history.

White Swan Inn, another historic home on Mears Ave, welcomes you to experience history first-hand at a Sesquicentennial event. Come join the fun.
