On October 2, 2008, the Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit program dedicated and celebrated two new wall panels that will be on permanent display on the northeast corner of Washington and Ashley streets. Speakers at the event include Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje, Thomas Aprill, grandson of Theophil Aprill; John Metzger, third generation owner of Metzger's Restaurant; and Ray Detter, Street Exhibit coordinator. The panels cover the topics "From Horses to Cars: Early Autos, Service and Parts" and "Three Generations of Metzgers on Washington Street."
