The three oaks of Three Oaks

We hope you had an opportunity to ready our Sept, 2016 posting on the three oaks of Three Oaks and the testing done by Dr. Robert Tatina, PhD.  He did an ebonizing test on the specimen found in our museum artifacts and determined our specimen to be white oak.  His findings were included in an article co-authored by him and Nancy Baird in the "Chronicle", a member magazine of The Historical Society of Michigan in their Fall 2016 publication.  The article, "The Three Oaks of Three Oak"s, gives details of his investigation of determining which type of oak tree our original trees actually were.  Pictures were included and the process of determining the oak type is explained.  The Region of Three Oaks Museum was mentioned within this article.  It is an interesting story of our regional history.
