Alpine Township Historical Commission hosts an Open House every third Sunday of the month. We honor Father's Day and Christmas with no open house in June or December.
Sunday, September 21 at 2 p.m. We will be dedicating the new cemetery stone, which represents all those graves which are not marked. Thomas Dilley, local historian and cemetery history expert will give a talk on cemeteries. this dedication will be at the Township Cemetery on Seven Mile Road and Walker Avenue. Everyone is invited and refreshments will be served.

In 2015, Alpine Twp. Historical is working with gentlemen from the National Weather Bureau to remember the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornado that swept through Alpine Township. In preparation for this 50th Year Anniversary please consider sharing photos or information you might have of that fateful day. Leave your name and phone number at the township office: 784-1262 so that one of the members can come to you or plan a date for you to come to our office on 7 Mile Road and Baumhoff St. to share information and photos. We can scan any photo or paper and give it right back to you. We can give you a copy on DVD to keep yourself! We are plannning to do a video of victims, workers and officials, who remember that tornado and all the damage it costs us in Alpine Twp. If you would share your experience with us on video, please leave your name and number with the township office. When we gather enough names, we will start scheduling dates to video at our Community Room, 2015 7 Mile Road.Thank you. Alpine Township Historical is always looking for items you would like to share, such as photos, which can be scanned and kept digitally. Originals can stay with you. We will give you a digital DVD of any photo scanned. Also, we have a collection of 4 generation photos. As you gather at any time, please remember to take a 4 generation photo and please share it with us. We can reproduce it and return your original. The 3rd Sunday in June is Father's Day. We do not hold an open house on that day. We wish every father and grandfather a very happy, healthy year!
August is set aside for summer fun. If that includes research, call the township at 616-784-1262 to set up an appointment. Thank you.
