Germans and Latinos of Lenawee:
Finding Home by the Lenawee Historical Society
The Lenawee Historical Society's Heritage Project was created to expand and promote deeper understanding of two major ethnic groups in Lenawee: Germans and Latinos. These groups have correlating stories of segregation and discrimination when they first settled in Lenawee and throughout their struggle to find home in an unfamiliar land.
The project explores how German and Latino immigrants have impacted the county through creation of enclaves in the larger community and creation of ethnic based organizations.
This project is funded in part by Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
