On Wednesday April 23, 2014 celebrate the 200th Birthday of Bela Hubbard, 19th-century naturalist, geologist, surveyor, lawyer, real estate dealer, lumberman, writer, civic leader and Detroiter! Born in Hamilton NY April 23, 1814, he came to our city in 1835 before statehood where he made this city his home until his death in 1896. Learn about this Michigan pioneer from Robert Andersen, a resident himself of Hubbard Farms, who has uncovered the life story of one of Detroit and Michigan’s most important citizens.
