On May 21, three official historical signs were installed on KBS’s campus, honoring the history of W.K. Kellogg’s estate and educating guests.
The signs tell the stories of three places at KBS:
- the Caretaker’s Cottage
- the Carriage House
- Windmill Island
“These signs provide our visitors a glimpse of the past and a current perspective on how KBS is keeping W.K.’s legacy alive,” said Nicole Kokx, Manor House Events Coordinator. “They capture moments in time which will last for years to come.”
The signs were developed in 2017 as part of an intern project by Jackson Kennedy, funded by the Manor House endowment, in collaboration with KBS staff.
“I consider working on these signs to have been a great point of personal growth for me,” said Kennedy. “I saw the challenges of the past and was able to relate them to how we can overcome the struggles of today.”
