Flint Postcards: Y.W.C.A.


  1. Is the top postcard of the YWCA located on Ann Arbor Street? If so, one of my first jobs was Project Coordinator of a program called Magic Me and we went to that building when it was a nursing home.

    It was nice seeing the postcard.

  2. I'm not sure on the top postcard. Anyhone else have info in its location?

  3. I believe Sylvia is thinking of the Stockton Mansion on Ann Arbor street. If memory serves -- the old YWCA was downtown on East First Street.

    Love this site, by the way, but am too "tubes deficient" to figure out how to have a screen name.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
