Today on Current State: U.S. Congressman John Moolenar (R) shares his thoughts on the Iran nuclear deal, immigration, and more; Ann Arbor celebrates the art of Bonsai at the Matthei Botanical Gardens; Scott Southard reviews Saint Mazie by Jami Attenberg; Grand Rapids Mayor Elect Rosalynn Bliss on her historic election as the city's first female mayor; and a tour of the historic Wilcox Plymouth Mill in Detroit.
Our summer visits to historic Detroit-area sites concludes with a stop at the Wilcox Plymouth Mill. Once a simple grist mill, it became a part of the Arsenal of Democracy, but is now in disrepair. Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with Jack Dempsey of the Michigan Historical Commission about the history that will be lost if it isn’t preserved.
