Boom Town: Detroit in the Roaring '20s

Event Type: NONE

Date: 4/18/2017
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 A speaker from the Detroit Historical Society will entertain us with stories of Detroit in the 1920s. From the dust and smoke of the nineteenth century, Detroit burst into the national spotlight in the early twentieth century. The automobile business was at full throttle, resulting in a city that grew faster than any other on the continent. Adding to the excitement, national Prohibition created a demand for alcohol that our Canadian neighbors gladly addressed. Rumrunning became the regionís second largest industry. Conventions loved Detroit, and so did organized crime. Boom town meets the Wild West.
