We all know the story of the wily Billy Durant and partner J. Dallas Dort as they worked to put “vehicle city” on the map with the world-famous Durant-Dort Carriage Company. Now is your chance to visit the historic offices of the most infamous men of Flint. Enjoy some light hors d’oeuvres amongst festive holiday decorations while enjoying the rich history of our city. The Christmas open house will take place Wednesday, December 11 from 5-7pm. Admission is free but consider a donation to the sponsors: the Genesee County Historical Society.
The Genesee County Historical Society exists with the mission to preserve, to educate and to document the history of Genesee County. Since 1915, the organization has collected historical documents, photos, apparel, and items. The collections became the basis of the Sloan Museum which opened in 1965. The society was integral to the creation of Crossroads Village and the historic Whaley House; and helped support the creation of the Flushing Historical Society, Fenton Historical Society and Grand Blanc Historical Society.
