Arenac County Historical Society Museum

Please visit our Web site to learn more about the Society, the exciting projects that are underway, our programs/events and the historical information available in Arenac County. Arenac County is situated along the Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron in the Great Lakes. It is rich in Indian history because of its abundance of hard chert and flint for arrowheads. It is rich in logging history as a part of the logging industry developed around Michigan's white pine and hardwoods as well as being a conduit to the lake for shipping the lumber produced here. The County also was the location of a 19th century summer resort hotel to which customers arrived by ship. Its history was gradually reshaped due to the disastrous wildfires that eventually destroyed the logging business in the area. Musuem offers artifacts dating back to the 1800's, home setting, such as a parlor and children's rooms are featured, items pertaining to Indian, lumbering in Arenac county, farming and schools.
