Birmingham Bicentennial Committee Seeks Public Survey Input

Birmingham Bicentennial Committee Seeks Public Survey Input

(City of Birmingham, Sept. 7, 2017)

BIRMINGHAM, MI, September 7, 2017 – A special committee of the Birmingham Museum Board is looking for public input regarding an important event coming December 1, 2018 – Birmingham’s 200th birthday. It will be the bicentennial of the first purchase of government land in what is now Birmingham by founder Elijah Willits.

The committee has been exploring various ways the community can celebrate our history together, including sponsoring a publication to coincide with the bicentennial. There are many options that could be of interest, so the committee is seeking community feedback to help guide its recommendations.

The survey takes about five minutes to complete.  It will be available in both paper/pencil form and online.  Print copies can be filled out at the following destinations around the city: 1) the Birmingham Museum lobby, 2) the Baldwin Public Library Adult Reference Desk, 3) the counter at the City of Birmingham Clerks office, and 4) the Birmingham Shopping District counter at City Hall.

Electronic versions will be available at  or at the museum’s Facebook page at
