Join the Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society for their Small Talk Series

On Sunday August 26, the Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society’s 2012 Small Talk Series will present The Millerites and a Personal Second Coming, a power point presentation by local historian Maureen Thalmann.

Local historian, Maureen Thalmann.

Started by a New York farmer, the Millerites were a 19th century doomsday cult that garnered a following of thousands. In Michigan, an Avon Township farmer’s story underscored the movement’s reach and effect. The presentation begins at 2:00 pm in the carriage house of the historic Wisner home, 405 Cesar East Chavez Avenue, Pontiac. Admission is $5.00. For further information call 248-338-6732.

All proceeds benefit the Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society, an all-volunteer 501c3 organization.
