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. 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.

We we honored to address the Algonac Clay Historical Society last night and in the process were allowed to access their archives two hours before our address. Not only did we locate two images we don't have, but also found numerous newspaper clippings and references many GI's losses that are NOT on our master list. As always, GI's never leave anyone behind. If additional research will substantiate these losses, they will be submitted to the Committee for placement on the War Memorial in addition to a banner should we locate a photo.
Pfc Raymond Miller II was 20 years of age when his tour of duty ended February 21st, 1969 in Vietnam. He proudly represented the city of Algonac in the US Army. We scanned his HS senior photo and will use this until a family member steps forward to provide a Military image.
Pfc Fred W Little was 28 years of age when his tour of duty ended July 24th, 1944 during the invasion of France. He proudly represented the city of Algonac in the US Army.

Earlier this past week, we were honored to scan a photo of Pfc Calvin Segar. He was 18 years of age when his tour of duty ended Sept 22nd, 1970 in Vietnam. He proudly represented the City of Port Huron in the US Army.

Pvt Edgar W Baird was 35 years old when his tour of duty ended Feb 8th, 1945. He proudly represented the city of Marysville in the US Army.

This brings our total number of images scanned at 208 out of the total of 570+. We have a long way to go, and a lot of money to raise.

We will go anywhere to address any group (Church, Historical, Service Club, Ancestry, you name it) to bring the message of this project to those concerned and those who may have questions. Presentations can be scheduled by contacting the hot line number below.

The need for community involvement is huge, This project is driven by and for the families of these brave men as well as being driven for the memories of these many sacrifices. Our 24/7 hotline hardly rings lately. If you cannot come to Port Huron, we have been known to make road trips and would be willing to meet you at any public place of your choosing. There is NO COST to you, now or in the future. We can also scan slides and negatives. If you have access to or know someone who has a photo of a St Clair County resident who died while in service to their Country, please contact (810) 985-2007.

All welcome, please join us.

Thanks to the donations from historical society and community members, we now have a marine camera on a pole behind the Community Museum. With this camera you are now able to see all freighters and all other water craft on the St. Clair River in front of Algonac.

If you would like to enjoy the view, you can go online to:
Google or YouTube and type in Algonac Marine Cam
