This historic event is open to the public, and will include Civil War reenactors, living historians, fraternal orders, guest speakers, song, and a military firing salute.
The GAR building was recently purchased from the City of Detroit and is currently under construction to restore it to it's original condition. The new owners, Mindfield, a Detroit based creative studio, have formed New GAR, LLC as the holding company. Mindfield plans to move their downtown Detroit offices to the GAR in November of 2013. There are also plans for a new restaurant on the 1st floor, and office space for lease on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no access to the building at this event.
The event is sponsored by Mindfield & New GAR, LLC
