Evening Sessions: The Great Saginaw Fire of 1893

The Bay County Library invites you to join this evening session. Join Tom Trombley, Vice President and Chief Historian at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County to learn about The Great Saginaw Fire of 1893. On May 20, 1893, a fire destroyed over 250 homes in Saginaw leaving behind block after block of crumbling foundations and ashes. Local tradition holds that the community refused all outside assistance and made a quick, almost phoenix-like, recovery from the disaster. In 2011 the Castle Museum’s archaeologist and volunteers excavated the basement of a house destroyed in the conflagration and revealed a very different story. In fact, Saginaw had a declining population and was struggling economically and it would take at least 10 years for the neighborhood to be completely rebuilt.

Michigan is home to 22 Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas, or CISMAs, that are on the front line for prevention, detection, and control of invasive infestations. Katie Grzesiak, Nick Cassel, and Fallon Chabala, representatives from the Michigan Invasive Species Coalition, will discuss what a CISMA is, how they can help with management of invasives on your property, and the benefits of partnering with your local CISMA.
