Museum opens with transportation exhibit

May 12, 2017

The Clinton County Historical Society Museum opens May 17.

This year’s featured exhibit “Horses, Bonnets and Devil Wagons” will focus on anything relating to travel and transportation in Clinton County from settlement days up to about 1940. There will be very early Michigan highway and railroad maps on display. See a fascinating photo collection of early Clinton County gas stations, hotels and many other transportation related artifacts. A revamped Lansing-St. Johns Interurban Railway exhibit will also be shown.

The museum complex consists of the Paine-Gillam House, Swegles General Store and the Carriage House, all located directly west of the Courthouse at 106 Maple Street, St. Johns.
