Second Saturday: "The Jefferson Project" with Avram Golden


In October Second Saturday goes "on the road" to visit a historic Bay City building and learn not only about its past, but the vision that its new owner has for its future. Avram Golden, owner of Golden Gallery & Custom Framing in downtown Bay City, has been hard at work for the past 3 years bringing the "Jefferson Project" to life. The project envisions a district where art, technology and manufacturing would come together in one central location for the community.

The building chosen for the project, located at the intersection of First and N. Jefferson Streets, was built in 1902 and has served several Bay City businesses: it was home to the Old Hammond Seed Company and a trucking company. It was also a storage facility for the Jennison Hardware Company and others.

Join Avram as he presents the history of the building, and the vision for the project now being shared by supporters throughout the community.
