Welcome to Ecorse Along the Detroit River
Hello and welcome to Ecorse Along the Detroit River,
Before I started this website, I researched and wrote a blog called Ruth Spangler's Blog after my Grandma Robson- her maiden name was Ruth Spangler. She lived in Ecorse on Beach Street for over forty years and worked in the Ecorse High School cafeteria and she and my Grandpa Robson were active in the Ecorse Presbyterian Church. I loved her very much and I dedicated the blog to her. I dedicate this website to her and to Ecorse, my home town.
In the years since August 2010, my very first post, I have researched and written much Ecorse history and two books about Ecorse: A Brief History of Ecorse, and yes, you guessed it, Ecorse Along the Detroit River. It occurred to me that Ecorse Along the Detroit River would be an excellent name for a website of Ecorse History and a good way to advertise the book as well. My Amazon Author Page is: amazon author page
Here are the links to the books: Ecorse Along the Detroit River and A Brief History of Ecorse. I hope you enjoy them, especially since most of the photographs in Ecorse Along the Detroit River are from John Duguay and Sandy Blakeman, Ecorse photographers and Ecorse citizens and boosters.I believe that Ecorse has a fascinating and significant history and I am glad that I grew up there and learned to appreciate it.
I am also glad that I am having a small part in preserving Ecorse History and I hope that you will add your memories and stories about Ecorse as well. If you have an Ecorse memory that you would like to share, contact me at email@example.com.
