After seeing Dearborn Patch's article, a reader emailed us wanting to know how he could access historic photos of the city.
Anyone can take a look at Dearborn history with a visit to the 's McFadden Ross House on Brady Street. There, the Floyd and Mary Haight Archives give access to "a diverse range of artifacts, photos, papers and books that reflect local families and changes in our community through time," according to the City of Dearborn website.
Browsing is free; reprinting or use of photos is available for a fee. Fees are as follows: 25 cents for a black and white photocopy; $5 for a digital scan onto a blank CD or drive; $25 for a full, touched-up reproduction of any size for personal use; $50 for commercial use, including books, online or in print media; $2 for images of maps or documents.
Prices can be negotiated with the head of the archives department.
Residents interested in getting an up-close look at the history of Dearborn can call the museum's McFadden-Ross House at 313-565-3000 for more information, or stop by any time from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
