LANSING, Mich. — In our Michigan History Throwback Segments we aim to share things about Michigan History that you may not have known.

This week we had the opportunity to speak with Valerie Marvin, Historian & Curator for the Michigan State Capitol and we are starting an in depth look at some of the portraits that you may see when you visit our State Capitol.

This is a timely discussion as this week alone we announced the start of aportrait for former Governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder.

Today we explore the entire Gallery of the Governors. This portrait gallery is an amazing array of past Michigan Governors and each portrait has a story behind it that only Valerie Marvin can share!

If you missed any of our past Michigan History Throwback segments you can find them on the FOX 47 Website.
