MONROE, Mich. — The River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation says most of the construction for the historic Michigan site’s estimated $100 million redevelopment will begin next year.
Cooper says the first step is a $2 million upgrade to the education center located at the site of the Battle of Frenchtown, an important battle in the War of 1812.
Cooper announced plans for historically accurate barns, houses and a trading post in the recreation of Frenchtown. Construction is expected to start in 2020.
The Wyandot of Anderdon Nation will also build a $10 million tribal center at the site, which will include a boardwalk for kayaking and fishing.
