Museum featuring 10 County residents from the past

June 2, 2022

This year the Clinton County Historical Museum is featuring 10 Clinton County residents from the past 160 years who have made news headlines in some way throughout their lives. It is exciting to share their stories and accomplishments.

There is a pioneer in air flight pioneer who made history 7 times, an advertising giant who has his own skyscraper in Chicago and an outspoken Victorian Era woman who became well known throughout the United States and Europe for her books and lectures regarding government and women’s rights. The exhibit provides a sample of some interesting people who were born here and/or went to school in this county.

Renovations have been completed on the second floor, so those rooms are now open along with the recently redone first floor parlors, dining room and bedroom. There are kitchens from the 1800’s and mid century 1950s and a great display and sampling of women’s clothing from the 1860s-1920s. There is also a doctor’s office as it might have been a century ago. And of course Calendar Hall features a newspaper history of Clinton County.

The Museum is open Sundays from 1 to 4 and Wednesdays 2 to 6 through summer and autumn except for Holiday weekends. Check it out at 106 Maple, St. Johns, MI 48879 West of the Courthouse Square. You may call 989.292.9096 or 989.224.2894 with questions and/or donations with Clinton County provenance or email
