History of the Bath Massacre
Tuesday, August 7, 7:00 p.m.
Carnegie Building, 451 E. Mitchell St., Petoskey

On May 18, 1927 in Bath, Michigan, a mass murder occurred at the new Bath consolidated school. On the last day of the school year, a deranged former school member caused an explosion which left 44 students and adults dead. Join George Robson, whose parents were both in the school at the time of the disaster, as he presents a photographic remembrance of this horrific tragedy which has almost been completely ignored through the years.
