RHGS Program: Boom Town: Detroit in the Roaring ’20s
Tuesday, April 16 @ 6:00 PM
Join Joel Stone, the senior curator for the Detroit Historical Society which manages the Detroit Historical Museum, as he discusses how Detroit burst into the national spotlight in the early twentieth century. The automobile business was at full throttle, resulting in a city that grew faster than any other on the continent. Adding to the excitement, national Prohibition created a demand for alcohol that our Canadian neighbors gladly addressed. Rumrunning became the region’s second largest industry. Conventions loved Detroit, and so did organized crime. Boom town meets the Wild West.
