The AmericaJR Web Team recently visited the Michigan History Museum in downtown Lansing, Mich. The flagship of the Michigan History Museum System, the Michigan History Museum offers you Michigan’s rich past, from the time of the state’s earliest peoples to the late 20th century. Trout Unlimited’s founding on the Au Sable is showcased in the Michigan History Museum’s newest exhibition, The River that Changed the World, opening Sept. 30, 2017. The exhibition features George Griffith’s 24-foot-long Au Sable river boat, surrounded by river scenes. A re-creation of the Wanigas Rod Shop introduces fly fisherman and rod maker Art Neumann, another founding member of Trout Unlimited.
