Have you recently moved to Ferndale and want to learn more about your new home? Or, have you lived here your whole life and wondered what the city looked like 50, 60, or 100 years ago? You can always visit our local history section to find great books about Ferndale’s Yesteryear.
Another great resource to answer any of your curiosities concerning our city’s development would be the Ferndale Historical Museum, located at 1651 Livernois St.
The Ferndale Historical Museum is run and maintained by the Ferndale Historical Society volunteer Board of Directors.
This non-profit organization has been offering Ferndalians research and genealogical services for decades; “the repository of all things Ferndale!”
The Museum is all volunteer based and operated. Over the years, they’ve collected history on the Ferndale area and city from up to a couple million years ago…, up to its days as an Indian trail and hunting grounds, to a Stage Coach stop, to Village, to City through the decades to the present.
Below, for #ThrowbackThursday, we’re featuring a few illuminating images stored in some of our own history books here in the library.
