The Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society (OCPHS) will receive the coveted Historic Preservation Award from the Lydia Barnes Potter Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). The DAR will recognize OCPHS for its "remarkable work at the community level in the area of historic preservation." The public and media are invited to attend.
Founded in 1874, the OCPHS is the oldest historical society in Michigan. The OCPHS played an integral role in the creation of the "Oakland County in the Civil War" map released by Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson in April.
