SDHC Executive Director Eric Gollannek will talk about the history and mystery of Singapore, the town that now lies buried beneath the sand dunes of the Lake Michigan shoreline at the mouth of the Kalamazoo River. Founded in 1836 by New York land speculator Oshea Wilder, at its peak, the town was more successful than neighboring Saugatuck but rapidly declined for both ecological and financial reasons and was uninhabited by 1878.

This event will be held in the 2nd floor gallery at the History Center in Douglas, 130 Center Street, Douglas at 11am. The one-hour program begins when the school bell rings at 11 a.m.

A summertime tradition since 1996, SDHC’s weekly Tuesday Talks present entertaining and informative insights into local and regional life and history throughout July and August.

Tuesday Talks are free for SDHC members; non-members are asked for a suggested donation of $5 per person.
