Michigan - Flushing Area Historical Society

Flushing, MI - The Flushing Depot was built in 1888 and provided passenger service until 1971. In 1975 it was converted to the "Depot Restaurant," but in 1980 a fire gutted the building leaving only the outside walls standing. In February 1984 the former owners donated the remains of the building to the Flushing Area Historical Society. Under the leadership of Paul Wightman, fund raisers, private donations and grants from the Community Development Block Grants and Michigan Equity Funds provided money for restoration. The Depot was restored to its former appearance and opened as the Flushing Area Museum and Cultural Center on June 7, 1997.

Flushing Historical Society Endowment Trust. In 2000, the Flushing Area Historical Society established an Irrevocable Endowment Trust to continue improving the museum and educational programs. The Historical Society Board of Directors implemented the Flushing Historical Society Endowment Trust.

Our Mission... "To collect, acquire, preserve and interpret the history and cultural development of the area in and around Flushing, Michigan.
