Seats of our Heritage

Created by artist Rick DeTroyer, "Seats of our Heritage" was created with seats from farm equipment to honor our agricultural heritage. Integrated into the arch are symbols from the City of Saline's seal: wheat, representing the farmer; the transit, a tool used by city founder Orange Risdon in his surveying; the automotive wheel representing a major source of employment for Saline's citizens; a wagon wheel, denoting Saline's early days as a hub in Detroit-Chicago shipping; a tree, representing the harmonious growth of agriculture and industry. Encircling the elements is a rope to symbolize the band of strength and character that the city draws from its citizens.

This public art was made possible through generous donations by: The City of Saline, Saline Economic Development Corporation, Michigan Council for Art and Cultural Affairs. The seats and other objects donated by the citizens of the Saline Area.
"Seats of our Heritage" is located in downtown Saline on the 100 block of N. Ann Arbor Street, just north of Michigan Avenue.
