New Blog for Heritage Hall

New Blog for Heritage Hall

Heritage Hall, (HH) the archives for Calvin University, Calvin Theological Seminary, and the church denomination that founded both schools, has created a new blog. The blog is named after the print magazine published by HH, Origins: The Historical Magazine of the Archives.

There are three posts to start with. An introduction to the blog, a story about Garret Heyns and the Calvin Prison Initiative, and a story about a Jewish girl who grew up in a Dutch Reformed neighborhood in Grand Rapids. The last is based on a story from Origins. HH staff will publish a couple of stories a week. 

They've also started a Facebook page. Some posts will be stories from the blog and others from websites related to the history HH focuses on. Many days the post will simply be a photo or postcard from their collections.

Please consider following the blog and Facebook page and pass this information on to family and friends who might be interested.
