Salt in the Saginaw Valley

April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Salt in the Saginaw Valley

Long before salt mines opened under Detroit, drilling began in 1838 on Michigan’s first brine well, in Midland County. Eventually, salt production would become a tremendous source of wealth in the Saginaw Valley, linked to the lumber industry. From health-seekers soaking in mineral springs to countless barrels of granulated salt shipped by train, our region’s fame attracted H.H. Dow to Midland in 1890. Join Kyle Bagnall, Manager of Historical Programs, as we investigate our salty past.

FREE | Ages: 12 and up, under 18 w/adult
