Michigan Military Heritage Museum group had formed to develop a museum to tell the stories of Michigan veterans through the development of dynamic and informative exhibits. This partnership has truly lit a strong flame of interest local and statewide as projects develop to move to the establishment of a regionally significant museum project. Current projects include preparing an 18th century British cannon on extended loan from the Detroit Historical Society for exhibit. Locally donated burr oak will be used to build an authentically reproduced carriage for this cannon which was rescued from the Detroit River in the 1990s. Also underway is a project to replicate a World War I ambulance, using a 1917 Model T body with a wooden bed, just as those used in that war.
