Explore southeast Michigan and allow our region’s storied past to unfold!

Hometown History Tours is now the personal blog for Karin Risko. She’ll be using this venue to post articles of interest regarding regional history and events. Karin established Hometown History Tours in 2009 as a means to show off the rich history of SE Michigan. She is the co-author of the book Michigan Civil War Landmarks and is working on A History Lover’s Guide to Detroit which will be released in May 2017.

Over the years, Detroit city tours became a major component of her vision so in 2016, the tour division of Hometown History Tours officially became City Tour Detroit

As part of Hometown History Tours, Karin actively promoted regional tourism via two important functions she created and hosted: 2010 and 2011 Southeast Michigan Heritage Tourism Networking Events. She also served as co-chair of the 2010 Southeast Michigan Geotourism Conference at Eastern Michigan University.
