Get those passports ready. Taking a trip down memory lane into Macomb’s history is just what the Macomb County Historical Society was thinking when they created the Bicentennial Passport to Macomb County History program. The Passport program was created to inspire and encourage people to visit historical places throughout the county. According to Kim Parr, director of the Crocker House Museum, one of the passport’s sponsors, “The main purpose of the program is to encourage our community and outsiders, to see the historical sites we have. It’s amazing how many sites we have. It’s helping people to think, with this bicentennial, about all the history we lost, and about how much we still have.” The Passport program runs now through the end of the year. It includes a passport booklet listing more than 25 historical sites in Macomb County. Explorers who visit seven of the sites and receive a stamp, can show their passports at the participating Culver’s restaurants and receive a free meal.
