Flint Photos: Marion Dena Pohrt and Civic Park School


Marion Pohrt was a long-time Flint resident, attending Civic Park and later teaching at the school. She died last summer, and her son Tom Pohrt passed along these photos.

  2. Good question. My Picture History of Flint is at my office, so maybe someone else can help with this one.

  4. Marion Pohrt was a class act. It is great to see some of the memorabilia from the family. The Pohrts collected so much incredible history of Michigan and the MidWest.
