Step into the Past at Open Houses March 24

Join the Cascade and Ada Historical Societies on the afternoon of Sunday, March 24 for two events looking back into the history of Cascade.

110 Years in Cascade: 
One Family's Memories
1 - 2 p.m. March 24 
Cascade Christian Church Chapel • Orange Avenue
Bill Bos, a longtime resident and owner of Bos Greenhouse & Farms, a centennial farm still operating in the same location on Spaulding Avenue today, will share family stories and photographs of life in Cascade over the last century as Cascade changed from forests and farms to the suburban community ‚Äčit is today.  
Following the presentation Cascade Christian Church chapel, built in 1880, will open its doors to the public, with volunteers available to share details of its history and restoration – including the stained-glass windows commemorating local families.

Museum Open House: 
History of the Thornapple
2 - 4 p.m. March 24
Cascade Historical Museum
2839 Thornapple River Drive

The Cascade Historical Museum (the old township hall) will also be open to the public – featuring a collection of original photographs, artifacts and exhibits about the community's past, including a new exhibit focusing on the Thornapple River.  

Refreshments will be provided by the Ada Historical Society. We hope to see you there.
