SEE "A HISTORY OF HUDSON'S" AT THE DETROIT HISTORICAL MUSEUM ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14
The Detroit Historical Society continues its free monthly Film Series with "A History of Hudson's" at the Detroit Historical Museum on Sunday, December 14 at 3 p.m.
"A History of Hudson's" runs 60 minutes, and tells the story of Detroit's historic Hudson's department store. Opening his downtown store to the public in 1881, James Lowthian Hudson's success enabled him to quickly pay back his creditors with interest. This indication of Mr. Hudson's honesty and integrity saved him later in times of trouble. The long history and memorable traditions of this store, which soon became a Detroit destination, are highlighted throughout the film.
The Film Series will continue at the Detroit Historical Museum in 2015 with the following films:
· "Nothing Will Be Alright," a look at Detroit in the 1960s, on January 11;
· "The Freedom Train," which chronicles Detroit's role in the civil rights movement, on February 8;
· and "Borderline: The Story of 8 Mile Road," which highlights the road's unique history, on March 8.
