Each year we ask members and friends to lend their support to our Annual Giving Campaign. This year we're trying something a little different, by inviting you to choose where your donation goes. Support our General Operating budget, or give toward special projects like the Carriage House interior, School House painting and repair, 1901 Standard Vehicle Carriage, or to an area that's most important to you! Donating is easy: Double-click the "2 attachments" link below to read the President's letter and print a mail-in response sheet, or visit our "Donate" page (link at top right) to make your gift securely on-line. All donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for helping ensure that History Lives Here at Pine Grove!

Spring Has Sprung!

Many thanks to the Oakland County Sheriff's WWAM community service workers, as well as our OCPHS volunteers for coming out to spruce up our grounds and to help with other tasks on Spring Clean Up day, April 29. What a difference a crew of willing helpers makes in a short time!

Hours of Operation

Our office and research library are generally open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., but our hours may vary due to the schedules of our volunteers or due to inclement weather. To ensure that someone will be here to assist you, please call ahead before visiting. Group Tours of Pine Grove must be arranged in advance. Contact us and we'll be happy to schedule a time for your group tour of six or more people.
