Upcoming Programs

BE PART OF A COMPLETE MAKEOVER OF THE MAIN ROOM OF THE ST. CLAIR MUSEUM AS WE CREATE THE SETTING FOR AN ENTIRE WALL OF MORE THAN 120 YEAR OLD, HIGHLY DECORATIVE, HAND-CARVED OAK PANELING.
The paneling was purchased for $125,000 in 1910 in England by St. Clair businessman George Gordon Moore and installed in Belle Reve, his palatial home on North Riverside. When Belle Reve was demolished in 1964, the paneling went to Port Huron, eventually to the Port Huron Museum. Through the Port Huron Museum’s generosity, the paneling has been returned to its St. Clair “home” for display in the St. Clair Museum.

The St. Clair Museum has launched a $20,000 “matching” fundraising effort to reconstruct and upgarade much of the stage and center area of the main museum to create a Belle Reve room where the paneling will be appropriately displayed. Donations can be made for yourself or in someone’s honor. Donation forms are available on the Museum’s facebook page (St. Clair Historical Museum) or by calling the Museum at 810 329-6888.
