We also accept historical antiques and artifacts, including documents, photographs, and other materials. Please contact us for more information or to make arrangements.
The Wixom Historical Society is in the midst of a major fund-raising campaign to repair the “Michigan” basement in the Wixom-Wire House Museum. The 160 year old basement walls, which are made of river rock and mortar, are beginning to crumble. Furthermore, one of the main, original support beams (actually a log) has dry rot, and needs to be replaced. If you would like to help us repair and preserve this local treasure, please make your check payable to: Wixom Historical Society; memo: Wixom-Wire House Restoration Fund.
