In 1818, a group of men traveled northwesterly from Detroit to confirm or dispel reports that Oakland County was a swampland, unworthy of settlement. Hear why this expedition took place; how they named our lakes; and what they reported. Presented by John Marshall, an 1818 Expedition Into Oakland County committee member. Sponsored with West Bloomfield Township Library. No charge.
