Bailey Sisoy Isgro
Owner of Detroit History Tours and The Detroit History Club
in Detroit, MI
Bailey Sisoy Isgro is the owner of Detroit History Tours and The Detroit History Club. She is an author, humorist, workaholic, and Faygo-loving tour guide from the great city of Detroit. She works as an automotive sculptor by day, and by night she writes and lectures on the history of the American working woman, prostitution, and Detroit between the World Wars. When she isn’t tramping around Detroit giving tours, drinking at century-old bars, and talking history with anyone who’ll join her, she can be found at her home in Highland Park, Detroit. She is meticulous in her research and passionate about historical accuracy, yet she takes great joy in presenting history in the most exciting, playful, and accessible way possible; after all, researching century-old brothels will increase anyone's sense of historical humor. A passionate connoisseur of all things delicious, she adamantly argues the health benefits of coney dogs and Vernors floats.
