A Rare Find: The Discovery of the Rough Sketch of the King's Domain at Detroit, 1790
Curator of Maps Brian Leigh Dunnigan will share the serendipitous acquisition of a depicted plan of Detroit in 1790 by Captain David William Smith. This unknown, rare map of Detroit provides early history, six years before the British troops made way for the United States troops. This map hand-drawn and hand-colored by Smith is a wonderful addition to the existing stellar map collection at the Clements. Parking and entrance information: Guests can enter through the North vestibule (glass entrance) which faces Hatcher and is wheelchair accessible. Individuals will need to sign in as they enter the building. Parking may be challenging but look for on-street parking either on Tappan or S. State Street (e-metered) or the S. Forest parking structure.
