The Dexter Area Historical Society in connection with the Ann Arbor Model Railroad Club will present a special event on June 10, 11, and 12, 2016. Called “Gordon Hall Days”, we will be highlighting the Railroad which came to Dexter 175 years ago. On July 4, 1841, Judge Samuel W. Dexter and the residents of the Dexter welcomed the first trains to Dexter. In July of 1941, the Village of Dexter had a grand celebration to celebrate the Centennial of the Railroad and as part of that event, Gordon Hall was opened to the public.
Now seventy-five years later we are celebrating the Railroad again. At Gordon Hall we will have speakers, musical events, Historical displays, children’s activities and much more. The Ann Arbor Model Railroad Club will have displays in Gordon Hall as well as at the old depot.
In the next few weeks we will be letting you know about the special people and events we have planned for your enjoyment. We will be posting articles here and on our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/dexterhistory/
