Tiger Stadium Lettering Goes On Display At Historical Museum

DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s exciting news for Detroit Tigers fans who still carry a torch for the old ballpark.

Just as the team stands one win away from a trip to the World Series, the Detroit Historical Society has obtained the original lettering from Tiger Stadium.

The words “Tiger Stadium” that stood over Michigan and Trumbull will be installed in a brand new gallery at the Detroit History Museum next week.

The Museum re-opens to the public November 23 with three new permanent exhibits: the Gallery of Innovation; the Allesee Gallery of Culture, Detroit: The Arsenal of Democracy; and an expanded Doorway to Freedom: Detroit and the Underground Railroad exhibit along with updates to the Streets of Old Detroit and America’s Motor City exhibits.

Museum visitors will find the lettering inside the Allesee Gallery.
