HISTORICAL SOCIETY:
Locked Door Hides Ann Arbor History

CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING

By BARTON HUTHWAITE
Behind a locked door on the
third floor of the old Water Com-
mission Building rests the history
of Ann Arbor.
Civil War guns, hand-carved
grain shovels and even a "Bone-
Shaker" bicycle are among the
antiques stored in the ancient
building.
The collection represents years
of research and contributions by
interested members of the Wash-
tenaw Historical Society. Hundreds
of books, costumes and imple-
ments relating to history of Ann
Arbor are contained in the crowded
storeroom.
Collecting Since 1873
"This is much of the collections
of the Washtenaw Historical Soci-
ety," Howell Taylor, custodian, ex-
plained. "The Society has been ac-
cumulating this material since'
1873," the amiable custodian con-
tined.
Taylor pointed to a Civil War
flag and gun. "That is an authentic
rifle used by a member of a Wash-
tenaw company that fought in the
Civil War. The flag behind it was
donated by the G.A.R.," the cus-
todian said.
Taylor walked over to a victorian
clock. "This clock was given to us'
'by a family inte 'ested in the pres-
ervation of Ann Arbor history. It
dates from about 1870," he pointed
out.
Bears Little Resemblance
Next to the. clock stood a bicycle
bearing little resemblance to those
of today. "This is one of the first
bicycles made. It was given the
name "Bone-Shaker" because of
its wooden wheels," smiled Taylor.
A shovel, carved entirely out of,
wood, leaned against the bicycle. A'
tagattached to it explained it was
hewn from white pine and, was
used by early Washtenaw farmers
to shovel grain.
Custodian Taylor explained the
purpose of the Washtenaw His-
torical Society. "Our 430 members
are dedicated to the preservation
of Ann Arbor history. The City has
been kind enough to let us use
this entire floor for storage, rent
free," he explained.

WASHTENAW FARM RELICS-An ox yoke and grain shovel of
the type used by Washtenaw farmers in the 1800's are in the
possession of the Washtenaw Historical Society. Both were carved
entirely from wood by the early farmer. These are but a few of the
many implements that the Washtenaw Historical Society owns.
The items are presently stored on the third floor of the Water
Commission Building. Historical pieces were donated by individuals
interested in the preservation of Washtenaw County history.

Historical Society dates back to
1870, when a group of interested
citizens formed the "Washtenaw
Pioneer Society." "The Pioneer
Society was replaced by the pres-
ent organization in 1929," Taylor
said.

"We are awaiting the time when
our collections will have a perman-
ent building," the custodian said.
He locked the door on Ann Ar-
bor's history and walked down the
three flights of wooden stairs to a
city largely oblivious of the room
containing the relics of past gen-
erations.
