The Michigan Archaeological Society invites you to a free lecture at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology.

Hull's Trace: In the desperate summer of 1812, General William Hull, at the head of over two thousand troops, blazed a 200-mile supply road from Urbana, Ohio to Detroit, Michigan. The route, known as “Hull’s Trace,” crossed the Huron River near the Wyandot village of Brownstown.

While much of the route is still in use, time and human progress have all but eradicated the “traces of the Trace.” Daniel Harrison, a historical archaeologist, tells the story of the only known surviving remnant of the original roadway. As an archaeological site, it sheds historical light on this little-known but crucial episode in the struggle for control of the Old Northwest.
