Smart Towns Lecture Series
Smart Towns is a lifelong learning program for everyone in the community led by educational, non-profit organizations including the Rochester Hills Museum. Smart Towns' "partners" work together to provide a unique series of programs exploring one period in history for one year. The theme for 2017 is "The Gilded Age in America: 1870-1900". While major changes were taking place in America after the Civil War, what was happening in Rochester during this time?

September 26th
Smart Town: Railroads and Depots in the Gilded Age: Silver Spoons and Golden Spikes - presented by Jackie Hoist and Ron Campbell

Time: 7:00 pm
Free for Museum Members
Seniors $3/Adults $5

The Museum's second presentation as part of the Smart Towns series on the Gilded Age. The Gilded Age was an era of rapid economic growth and railroads were the major growth industry. America had a love-hate relationship with the railroads as travel became easier, cheaper and more common. How did these iron horses change our country? Jackie Hoist and Ron Campbell will take you on a trip back in time to learn about trains, depots, and travel during the Gilded Age.

Please visit Smart Towns for more information on local community led programs.
