Driving Woodward Ave - Detroit's Main Street - south to Downtown
Every city has a main street and no doubt about it – Woodward Ave. it that street to be Detroit’s main street. I am driving portion just south of Grand Boulevard starting at Canfield Street to Larned Street …almost down to the Detroit River. Woodward has developed into a very nice street over the last few years – great for driving and even walking. Whereas even five years ago walking this same stretch would be unthinkable, now it would be no different from most large cities. Walking around in downtown Detroit along Woodward and one block off on each side would be decidedly normal in Detroit now a days. But don’t venture off too far as it can get decidedly sketch very quickly.
The drive is made decidedly more interesting because it is a night drive and there are Christmas decorations.
M-1, commonly known as Woodward Avenue, is a north–south state trunkline highway in the Metro Detroit area of the US state of Michigan. The highway, called Detroit's Main Street, runs from Detroitnorth-northwesterly to Pontiac. It is one of the five principal avenues of Detroit, along with Michigan, Grand River, Gratiot, and Jefferson avenues. These streets were platted in 1805 by Judge Augustus B. Woodward, namesake to Woodward Avenue. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has listed the highway as the Automotive Heritage Trail, an All-American Road in the National Scenic Byways Program. It has also been designated a Pure Michigan Byway by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), and was also included in the MotorCities National Heritage Areadesignated by the US Congress in 1998.
The trunkline is the dividing line between Detroit's East and West sides, and connects to some of the city's major freeways like Interstate 94 (I-94, Edsel Ford Freeway) and M-8 (Davison Freeway). Woodward Avenue exits Detroit at M-102 (8 Mile Road) and runs through the city's northern suburbs in Oakland County on its way to Pontiac. In between, Woodward Avenue passes through several historic districts in Detroit and provides access to many businesses in the area. The name Woodward Avenue has become synonymous with Detroit, cruising culture and the automotive industry.
Woodward Avenue was created after the Detroit Fire of 1805. The thoroughfare followed the route of the Saginaw Trail, an Indian trail that linked Detroit with Pontiac, Flint, and Saginaw. The Saginaw Trail connected to the Mackinaw Trail, which ran north to the Straits of Mackinac at the tip of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. In the age of the auto trails, Woodward Avenue was part of the Theodore Roosevelt International Highway that connected Portland, Maine, with Portland, Oregon, through Ontario in Canada. It was also part of the Dixie Highway, which connected Michigan with Florida. Woodward Avenue was the location of the first mile (1.6 km) of concrete-paved roadway in the country. When Michigan created the State Trunkline Highway System in 1913, the roadway was included, numbered as part of M-10 in 1919. Later, it was part of US Highway 10 (US 10) following the creation of the United States Numbered Highway System. Since 1970, it has borne the M-1 designation. The roadway carried streetcar lines from the 1860s until the 1950s; a new streetcar line known as the QLine opened along part of M-1 in 2017.
Woodward Avenue starts at an intersection with Jefferson Avenue next to Hart Plaza about 750 feet (230 m) from the Detroit River. The plaza is regarded as the birthplace of the Ford Motor Company, and it is located near Cobo Center and the Renaissance Center, headquarters for General Motors (GM). Woodward Avenue runs north-northwesterly away from the river through the heart of downtown Detroit and the Financial District. Along the way, it passes several important and historic sites, including notable buildings like One Woodward Avenue, the Guardian Building, and The Qube. Woodward also passes The Spirit of Detroit, a statue used to symbolize the city. Further north, Woodward Avenue runs around Campus Martius Park and enters the Lower Woodward Avenue Historic District, a retail, commercial, and residential district listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). After that historic district, the avenue travels through the middle of Grand Circus Park; the northern edge of the park is bounded by Adams Avenue, where state maintenance begins.

Carson County Square House Museum Complex (Full) in 4K
The purpose of the Carson County Square House Museum is to provide the highest possible level of museum experience through the collection, care, exhibition, interpretation, and demonstration of items that illustrate the history, natural history, and art of the Texas Panhandle.
ABOUT THE SQUARE HOUSE MUSEUM
The historic Square House, built of lumber that was hauled from Dodge City in the 1880's, is just one of 21 buildings, that make up the Square House Museum complex. Case exhibits and full-sized diorama tell the story of the Texas Panhandle and its people, from mammoth hunters 12,000 years ago, through the Indian Wars, cattle ranches, and the coming of the railroad in the 19th century, to the oil boom of the 1920's and the region's part in the space program of today. A wildlife gallery and two art galleries add other dimensions to the history. Accredited three times by the American Association of Museums, the Square House Museum is considered one of the best small museums in the United States.
The Carson County Square House Museum started with the original Square House. Square House is a small house which was built in the late 1880's as the railroad reached to town of Panhandle and as the town was being populated. It was occupied by early settler James C. Paul how was a pioneer banker. Next in line was Judge J.L. Harrison he was a rancher. Next was James B. Wilks how was an innkeeper. Last one was the Sheriff Oscar L. Thorp. The house was moved to its site at 5th and Elsie Streets in Panhandle, TX. After much needed restoration became the nucleus of the present Square House Museum complex with its multiple buildings. 1967 the museum was opened. In 1966 it was awarded a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark plaque. It was entered in the National Register in 1973. The museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums. This gem of the Texas Panhandle houses historical artifacts, art, and a Texana library. Traveling and in-house art exhibits are hung in the two art galleries.
Over 10,000 indoor and outdoor artifacts are on display. Sculpture is on display, as is art by local indigenous tribes. Other structures and exhibits include a train caboose, a windmill, a barn, a dugout shelter and art galleries, all focused on local history and current events

Shot by some guy who walked up with his helmet on to rent my camera, paid with cash, never said a word, rode away. (Then brought my camera back and this was on it.) I will never forget you you mysterious, Stig-like Adonis.
