The Dansville Michigan Historical Society has secured a location, and the pandemic is part of the reason why.
We all know the cliche, that it takes a village to raise a child. But Dansville, Michigan, A small village in Ingham County, has remained connected for several generations. What’s the key to a tight-knit city? Kelen Gailey, president of the Dansville Historical Society, put it this way: preserving the history of the community.
The notion of conserving their town’s history first struck Gailey while he was in middle school. His grandmother was showing him a picture, he asked her, “who are the other people?” When she was unable to answer, that really stuck with him.
