The Concordia Guild invites the public to view a rare art collection of scenes of Ann Arbor from the 19th century to benefit the Historic Manor House fund.

Patrons will be able to view 33 paintings of street scenes, homes, and buildings from Ann Arbor's past while listening, via headsets, to narratives describing their stories.

Concordia is opening its doors and inviting the public to view this rare collection in anticipation of the city of Ann Arbor's 2024 bicentennial celebrations. The collection, while created in the 2000s, was privately housed and unavailable for general viewing until it was donated to Concordia.


The public, especially Ann Arbor history enthusiasts, are encouraged to attend.


The grand opening will take place October 15.

Following the grand opening, the Guild will host self-guided tours on a monthly basis on Sunday afternoons. Reservations for those tours can be made by email at, or by phone (734-995-7509).


The paintings are on display throughout Concordia's historic Earhart Manor.


Tickets for the Grand Opening will be available for purchase on beginning September 1. Check back for a link.

Ticket sales will be used to support the good work done by the Guild as it raises scholarship funds for students and provides funding for the Manor's maintenance.
