Celebrating the 200th birthday of the PW House, the Grand Opening of the GPHS History Center

We hope you will join us for birthday cake, coffee, wine, and refreshments as we celebrate the official grand opening from 5 to 7 PM, Friday, January 20!

It was 1823 when the Provencal Weir House was built. Over the years she served as many things, most recently as headquarters of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society. In honor of her birthday, we’ve given her a present. She no longer needs to be loaded down with offices and archives, and can resume being a House Museum. We have built the Grosse Pointe Historical Society History Center right across the street! It is a present befitting a 200th birthday!

Dignitaries will be on hand to cut the ribbon and we will all enjoy music and good company at 375 Kercheval, Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. You can then go across the street and tour the Provençal Weir house and participate in an interactive exhibit where you leave a note on artifacts about which you are curious.

The Stroh exhibit of photographs will still be up and you can see our new location! Invite your friends.

You can also donate to our capital campaign fund here. http://www.gphistorical.org/support04.html
