Some 300 years ago, the first and only battle engaged in the Grosse Pointes occurred in what is now the Windmill Pointe area and recognized by a historical marker commemorating the Fox Indian Massacre. Elizabeth Vogel, a lifelong Grosse Pointer and trustee of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society researched the event and wrote a 30-page paper, “Commemorating the Fox Indian Massacre.” With Vogel, center, at the Oct. 22 Grosse Pointe Rotary luncheon meeting, were club president Diane Strickler, left, and Rotarian Suzy Berschback, and former curator of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society, at right.
