Travel Tuesday: A Market in the Motor City

"Ulysses S. Grant, George Custer and John J. Pershing marched troops up and down on the same area of road where one can buy their locally grown peonies. Part of the Underground Railroad ran under the Market to provide escaped slaves a safe way to Canada. More than one Native American burial site was discovered below the Market’s grounds, and later moved to a cemetery."

The above reflects just some of the history behind Detroit's Eastern Market. The site is the subject of a Lincoln Now piece called "Detroit Stories: Eastern Market," an article we're revisiting in honor of #TravelTuesday. It paints a picture of a thriving market where Detroiters can eat and socialize, and it's embedded above.

At Pugmire Lincoln, located at 1865 Cobb Parkway, S.E. in Marietta, we have a great selection of new Lincoln models that would be perfect for, say, a road trip up to Detroit. Come check them out at your convenience.
