Snapshots of a Family Trip to Michigan’s Prehistoric Forest in 1979 – Design You Trust

Snapshots of a Family Trip to Michigan’s Prehistoric Forest in 1979

“My dad was an amateur photographer back then,” write Trina Ferris, a native of Kalamazoo, Michigan. “He has hundreds of pictures of us. I got these from him because I am an urban explorer and went to the prehistoric forest for an adventure.”

The pictures of Trina take us back to 1979, a family trip to the Prehistoric Forest in Irish Hills. Opened in 1963, the attraction featured life-sized dinosaurs created by James Q. Sidwell, a former dinosaur exhibit designer at Chicago’s Field Museum.
