GRAND OPENING – RIBBON CUTTING – June 1, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. The Red Mill - 349 N. Water Street, Portland MI 48875 The Portland Area Historical Society was formed in 1969 under the leadership of Portland’s librarian, Betty Anesi. Now, 50 years later, it is helping Portland celebrate its sesquicentennial, 150 year celebration, by opening a temporary museum in the restored Red Mill. The museum showcases Portland’s agricultural and manufacturing past while also featuring its love of baseball. In addition, there is an exhibit on the area’s bridges and the Divine Hotel. The historical society invites you to come and tour the museum and learn more about Portland’s past. The museum will be open on Saturday's throughout the summer from 9-2 as is the Farmers Market. The Museum will be open both Saturday and Sunday, September 21 & 22 for the city-wide Sesquicentennial Celebration. The society will have maps, books, and other memorabilia for sale. There is no charge to tour the museum, but donations to help defray costs are always appreciated. We invite you to share in our GRAND OPENING on June 1, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. We hope to see you there!
