The Algonac/Clay Historical Society was formed in 1991 by combining the former Algonac Boating and Historical group and the Clay Township Historical Society. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the area.Use our Algonac route maker site to add Algonac Clay Historical Museum and other attractions to your Algonac vacation plans.
The Society is funded by donations and fund raising events. The Township of Clay and the City of Algonac have been very supportive by donating funds to special projects. At present the Society has two museums. A hard working group of local volunteers keeps the museums operating by donating many hours for planning exhibits, cataloging the donations, preserving the artifacts, taking care of maintenance and manning the museum.
Goals of the organization: To preserve local history and to provide educational opportunities for all segments of the community.
Archives and Artifacts: Our archives include Algonac's boat building heritage featuring Chris-Craft, Gar Wood and the many other local boat builders. Over 10,000 artifacts also features local history, business, industry, schools, churches and the military.
