Anchorville, Michigan

Anchorville, Michigan is located along the north shore of Lake St. Clair, also known as Anchor Bay.  It is part of Ira Township, it is one of four unincorporated communities.

The Reverend Charles CHAMBILLE arrived in 1853 to serve the French living in the area, it was called Swan Creek Settlement at the time.  CHAMBILLE dedicated the church in 1854, in which became the nucleus of a village.  In 1876, it was rena

Anchorville, Michigan

med to describe its location on Anchor Bay.  A post office was established in 1885.[1]

This area saw four wars over the land between the

 

French and British due to the valuable fur trade in the area, ending with the eventual withdrawal of the French from Forts Pontchartrain, St.-Joseph, and Mackinac.  The British garrisoned these forts but the Indians attacked in hopes of their friends the French would return.  There was an eventual peace treaty in 1763.  The British built for Sinclair in 1765.

During the Revolutionary War what is now Michigan became part of the British province of Quebec, and it wasn’t until 1818 when Michigan territory was included fully back into the United States.  St. Clare county was set off from Wayne County on 28 March 1820.

St. Clair County was the first stopping place for many immigrants from Canada who crossed the St. Clair River.

Michigan became a state in 1837.  St. Clair County is mainly rural with agriculture and related activities making up the bulk of the economy[2].
