Alpine Township Historical Commission has postponed our Sunday, April 19th Best of West Michigan Maple syrup contest and Book sale. We hope to host these sometime soon.
Alpine Twp Historical is always looking for items you would like to share, such as photos, which can be scanned and kept digitally. Originals can stay with you. We will give you a digital DVD to keep.
Alpine Township Historical Commission has a wagon that is in need of revitalizing. They are looking for people who are interested in this volunteer project. Please call the township office (616-784-1262) and leave your name and number if you are interested in rebuilding a historical wagon.
Also, we have a collection of 4 generation photos. As you gather at any time during the year, please remember to take a 4 generation photo and please share it with us. We can reproduce it and return your original. Or, call the township office at 784-1262 and you can email it to them
In 2015, we printed The 50th Anniversary of the Palm Sunday Tornado book. This is a history of the tornado that came through Alpine Township on April 11, 1965. We worked with the National Weather Service on this very interesting book. It is available for $20 at the township office on Alpine Ave. and 6 Mile Road. We interviewed those who lived through that tornado and included photos of the destruction of that day. Along with the book, we include a DVD of those interviews and photos.
Alpine Township Historical office is in the Community Building at 2015 Seven Mile Road.
Alpine Township Historical museum is just east at 7 Mile and Walker Ave.
For information call the Alpine Township office at 616-784-1262
