Overview

Founded in 1824 by two Easterners whose wives, according to legend, were both named Ann, Ann Arbor was soon prospering as the home of the University of Michigan and as a key stop of the Michigan Central Railroad. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book Historic Photos of Ann Arbor, Alice Goff and Megan Cooney provide a revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Ann Arbor. The images collected in Remembering Ann Arbor offer a remarkable glimpse into the history of this unique community, from its early days to the recent past. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of Americans and two centuries of an important American city. Remembering Ann Arbor is sure to captivate anyone curious about the city’s past, from the student of history to the local history buff.
