Michigan Historical Commission approves 4 site markers
Lansing — The Michigan Historical Commission has approved historical markers for four new sites in the state.
The Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit is set to receive a marker commemorating the Port Huron to Mackinac sailboat race. Another historical marker approved by the commission on Feb. 11 will honor a peace treaty signed between Native American leaders and U.S. officials after the War of 1812. The Treaty of Spring Wells was signed on a site now known as Fort Wayne.
Michigan Historical Markers also will be placed at two churches built in the late 1800s in Crawford and Alpena counties.
The commission also accepted applications seeking markers for two neighborhoods and the Croswell House in Adrian.
More than 1,700 of the historical markers can be found in Michigan and other states.
