"This exhibit is built on the objects in our collection," said Castle Museum Deputy Director Tom Trombley.
"These pieces randomly tell Saginaw's story and the city's development."
Original plans of Morley Brothers hardware, as well as other long forgotten Saginaw structures, show the remarkable architectural style that helped make the city of Saginaw.
From weather vanes that once stood atop the Castle Building to the terra cotta lion heads that graced the Saginaw Daily News building, this display shows some of Saginaw's more elaborate architecture no longer seen in the city.
"These lion heads are all that are left of the Saginaw Daily News building," said Trombley
"We were fortunate to have acquired such a wonderful piece of Saginaw history."
Other artifacts include hand carved Civil War figures, Bricklayers and Masons' Union items as well as Gear-Rilla, the beloved Saginaw Gears team mascot.
"Gear-Rilla is a more recent piece of Saginaw's history," Trombley
"But no less important in telling the story of it."
