Selinsky-Green Farmhouse Museum

Selinsky-Green Farmhouse Museum

The Selinsky-Green Farmhouse Museum represents the history of a typical family of the late nineteenth century. Prussian immigrants, John & Mary Selinsky, came to St. Clair Shores (then Erin Township) in 1868 and by 1874 had built this salt-box structure of log construction. The Farmhouse was moved to its current location to make way for the I-696/I-94 interchange. It was carefully restored by devoted volunteers so that it could be preserved for future generations to enjoy. When you visit you will learn about rural life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in St. Clair Shores through changing exhibits, period-decorated rooms, guided tours, and special events. Special events & activities include cooking, annual garden tea, Pisanki classes, soap making, and more. We are open September through May from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday and Wednesdays. June through August hours are 1-4 p.m. on Wednesdays only. The Farmhouse can also be seen by appointment and it is available for rental for a small fee. The Farmhouse also features a gift shop selling crafts and items on local history.
