About

Enter the doors of the St. Clair Historical Museum and travel back 250 years to the community’s beginning as a British Fort, moving to its days as a Michigan lumbering and brick manufacturing mecca, through its transition to salt purification, and shipbuilding. View artifacts and photographs of the fabulous resorts and hotels that drew guests from all over the world to the beautiful landscape and therapeutic mineral baths. Delve into family histories, city records and directories, newspaper articles, obituaries and documents.

Upcoming Programs

The St. Clair Historical Commission and Volunteers announce that because of Covid 19 we will be closed to the general public until further notice.  All of our tentatively scheduled events and presentations have also been cancelled for 2020.

 We know many of you remain interested in the Museum and its programs, so our members are working on posting Historical Programs, video tours, and other information on line, on social media and on cable TV to continue to share St. Clair’s History with everyone.  Volunteers will also continue to gather and organize historical information, photographs, and documents at home, or safely at the museum. 

Some volunteers have offered to help people do research, by appointment only, one to two researchers at a time.  Researchers and Museum volunteers must wear masks in the building and social distance during these appointments.   

Please contact Chrissy Gorzen at [email protected], or call the Museum at (810) 329-6888 with your request.  Supply the topic you are researching, and what information about that subject you are interested in. This way the information can be gathered by the volunteer who is most educated in your area of interest.  Books, binders, documents will be ready for your arrival.  You can read and photograph the material we have. You may also request an appointment by writing and mailing to the commission at 308 S. 4th Street, St. Clair, Michigan 48079 

We will also be available by appointment to receive donations.  Please call or write us at the above telephone number or e-mail address to schedule an appointment.

We sincerely miss seeing our usual friends at our programs and events.  Please take care of yourself, so we can see you again, when it is safe.

Thank you,

The St. Clair Historical Commission
