Unique Street Names: The Man on the Street and the Women, Too

Joel Stone, Senior Curator at the Detroit Historical Society, will use everyday street signs to explore the 300 years of Detroit’s history, and the story of the people whose legacy is traversed by citizens every day. Setting Detroit apart are the recognizable names of streets like Woodward, Beaubien, Mount Elliot, and Selden. Behind each of these monikers is a man or woman who played a part in Detroit’s past.
