Authors Susan Wineberg and Patrick McCauley

Patrick McCauley is a lifelong resident of the Ann Arbor area, growing up in Salem and Superior Townships. Real Estate, home building, and house restoration have been a part of his life as far back as he can remember, and he works in Ann Arbor as a Realtor with the Charles Reinhart Company.

 He is a graduate of the University of Michigan (class of 2000) with a bachelor’s degree in history. His love of historic architecture began during his 25 years of working on historic homes with his family’s house painting and home restoration business. He has bought and restored three neglected historic homes in Ann Arbor since 2001, winning a Rehabilitation Award from the Ann Arbor Historic District Commission (HDC) in 2009 for his efforts.

McCauley has been a volunteer at both the Kempf House Museum and Cobblestone Farm Museum, and served as Chair of the Germantown Historic District Study Commission. He currently serves on the Ann Arbor Historic District Commission, having held the position of Chair and Vice Chair, and is also on the board of the Ann Arbor Historical Foundation. He lives with his wife Andrea Kinney in a historic Greek Revival home on Ann Arbor’s north side.

Susan Cee Wineberg was born and raised in Chicago, where she acquired her love of all things architectural, old and new. Her home was a mid-century Modern townhouse designed by a student of Mies van der Rohe. She came to Ann Arbor in 1964, worked as an archaeologist in Turkey, and obtained advanced degrees in Near Eastern Studies and Anthropology. The Ann Arbor Sesquicentennial and American Bicentennial fueled her interest in local history and in 1993 she obtained an MS in Historic Preservation at Eastern Michigan University.

Susan has served as President of the Washtenaw County Historical Society (1994-1999); on the Historic District Commission three times; as Chair of the Awards Committee of the HDC for 20 years; and on numerous committees, including the Downtown, Landmark, Individual Historic Properties, Lower Town, Old Fourth Ward, and Germantown Historic District Study Committees. She has written extensively on Ann Arbor and published Lost Ann Arbor in 2004, in addition to the second edition of this book, formerly entitled Historic Buildings, Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1992. She lives with her husband Lars Bjorn in an 1850 Greek Revival house in the Old Fourth Ward Historic District.

About the Ann Arbor Historical Foundation

ann-arbor-historical-foundation-logo.jpg

The Ann Arbor Historical Foundation is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of our initiatives is the Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit Program.

Complete exhibit listings and locations, along with a map, are available on the Ann Arbor District Library website by clicking here.

The Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit Program began at the grass roots level as an idea developed by local residents interested in the past and future of downtown. The Ann Arbor Historic District Commission is the official project sponsor, and the program is endorsed by the Downtown Development Authority, City Council and the four downtown merchant associations. These groups endorsed the exhibit program and provided seed capital which was matched by a grant from the Michigan Council for the Humanities and contributions from local individuals, businesses, groups and foundations.

The overall design concept emerged from an intense, all-day brainstorming session attended by over twenty Ann Arbor area design professionals. Since then, a team of designers and historians has continued to develop exhibit concepts. The Historic District Commission accepted the design prototype and the first exhibit was installed at Courthouse Square in June 1999. It includes four transparent glass frames, 13 wall displays, and three bronze artifacts.

As major fund raising continued, nine more glass frames were installed in the Main Street and Kerrytown area in November of 2001, followed by another seven glass frames on State Street and South University in July 2003. Two more frames are planned for the new Broadway Bridge. As each milestone was accomplished, all donors and volunteers joined together in a large, festive, and happy celebration.

Work is progressing on a series of over thirty additional wall panels to accompany the glass frames in both the downtown and campus areas. More bronze artifacts will be installed as time and funds permit.

Project historians continue to work with the Ann Arbor Public Schools to develop curriculum materials based on the exhibits and with the Ann Arbor District Library staff on incorporating the exhibits into their website.

The program has received several awards for the excellence of its design, at the state level from the Historical Society of Michigan and from the Michigan Historic Preservation Network, as well as an award from the International Downtowns Association.
