The first mass transit system in Rochester was a canal that ended in the community in 1838 – it was part of the first public works project in the State of Michigan. Celebrate the Bicentennials of Rochester and Utica by retracing the canal’s route from Mt. Clemens to Rochester. Participants will be able to walk along parts of the canal, see remains of one of the locks, and learn the history of this man-made waterway that endured as a millrace long after its use for transportation ended.  

The Rochester Hills Museum is located at 1005 Van Hoosen Road, off Tienken Road between Rochester and Dequindre Roads.
