‘Odawa Warriors Journey’ exhibit grand opening
The grand opening of the Odawa Warriors’ Journey on Aug. 12, 2011, at Pellston Regional Airport drew more than 110 guests, who got a first look at the historical presentation of key people and events that shaped this region’s — and the country’s — history.
Visitors can expect to meet key historical figures from Odawa, French and British history; watch a movie based on a French soldier’s journal during the time of the French and Indian War (1750-1761); and tour an authentic wigwam.
The exhibit, a project of the Emmet County Historical Commission, is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., at no charge. Signs in the airport will direct visitors to the Trophy Room, where the exhibit components will be arranged, including interpretive display boards, a self-guided cellphone tour and life-size figures telling their own stories from the time period.
