Detroit Historical Society’s 100th Anniversary Celebration

The Detroit Historical Museum was the setting for the Detroit Historical Society’s gala celebrating a century of collecting, sharing, and preserving the Motor City’s history. The evening of April 29, 2023, featured dinner and dessert offerings throughout the museum, a raffle, and more. Guests were also invited to view displays and exhibits. During the event, five notable Detroiters — Ben Wallace of the Pistons, Lomas Brown of the Lions, broadcasters George Blaha and Ken Daniels, and anchorwoman Amyre Makupson — were inducted into Legends Plaza. This outdoor exhibit features the handprints and signatures of “individuals who have helped shape the culture of the region, state, and nation.” Proceeds from the event benefited the DHS’s many educational programs.
