Ruth Mott Applewood

WELCOME TO

We want to hear from you!

The Ruth Mott Foundation is collecting personal stories that highlight the community’s connections to the Mott family, Applewood, and Flint—the city the Motts called home for decades. Your stories will help us preserve our collective history, compile feedback, and share these anecdotes with our community.

Whether it’s your memories of C.S. and Ruth Mott, your favorite Applewood experience, or your partnership with the Ruth Mott Foundation, we want to hear your stories. All stories will be archived at Applewood, and some stories will be posted online and/or included in an upcoming Applewood exhibit.

Sample stories appear below, or you can view the entire archive by clicking through the list on the right.
