The history of the Adrian Training School will be the topic of a series of events on Thursday April 24, 2014. From 3:00 to 4:30 pm an exhibit entitled “Haviland’s Girls: From Wayward to Womanly” opens in the old Fashion Bug display area in the Adrian Mall.
Students from Adrian College have spent the past few months learning about the history of the Training School and the community’s involvement in the state reform school. The students will be on hand to answer your questions and explain the exhibit to you in person. The exhibit will remain on display through the month of April and into May.
At 7:00 pm Ray Lennard will present a program about the history of the Adrian Training School at the Lenawee County Historical Museum, located at 110 E Church St in Adrian. The program will look at the nearly 130 year history of the ATS, some of the key players that brought the Training School to Adrian, and a few of the more memorable events in the School’s long history. In addition, a few of the Adrian College students will join us to talk about their findings during research. Mayor Jim Berryman will also be on hand to discuss the future of the ATS site.
