Preserving McDougall-Hunt History
Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation is dedicated to preserving the history of the people that lived and continue to live in our neighborhood. All too often history focuses on the noteworthy and famous while undervaluing the contributions of the rest of society. We want to make sure that the stories of the people who make up the fabric of McDougall-Hunt now and in the past are preserved for the future. We are partnering with the Detroit Historical Society to help collect and preserve the memories and stories of McDougall-Hunt residents. We will have a number of events and opportunities to capture stories, memories, and digitize photos and documents.
McDougall-Hunt Historical Alley Walk
One of the outcomes of collecting these oral histories, photos, and documents is that they will be used in the exhibits featured in our Historical Alley Walk at Bailey Park. Our neighborhood has undergone so much transformation it's important to honor the memories of those who used to call this area home. Click the button to learn more about this project.
