Grosse Pointe Encampment: “On
the Shores of Lake St. Clair: 1700-
1820,” Saturday, September 24, from
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday,

p.m. at Neff Park in the City of Grosse
Pointe, 17350 E. Jefferson Avenue.
The Grosse Pointe Historical Society
and the City of Grosse Pointe are co-
sponsoring this interactive portrayal of
frontier life on the Great Lakes. Re-
enactors dressed in period attire offer
authentic depictions of French
voyageurs, Native Americans, British
military personnel traders, and French
and British settlers.
These historic figures will delight chil-
dren and adults alike with tall tales and
a variety of demonstrations including
muzzle loading, cannon fire, and mili-
tary life in the1700s.
Guests are invited to browse and buy quality wares at the Encampment’s “Sutlers” Tent or select from a variety of
Grosse Pointe historical books, videotapes, and other informative videos.
“This is a chance for the citizens of this area to learn about the early settlements and how our ancestors lived among
the natives and survived in a harsh, unforgiving environment,” said Dale Canapini, co-chair of the event.
