Saginaw, Michigan

Saginaw, Michigan

Saginaw was established in 1816 as a fur-trading post by Louis Campau. In 1822 it became "Fort Saginaw," under the leadership of Colonel David Standard, the first postmaster. In the 1850�s, several cities were developed, including Saginaw City, East Saginaw and Saginaw West Side. In 1889, the 3 cities were consolidated during the lumber boom. It soon became known as a major shipping port on the Great Lakes.


Today Saginaw continues its reputation as a significant shipping center for farm products and sugar processing. A major player in the auto industry, it is a major contributor to the steady growth of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area, (along with Midland and Bay City). Saginaw is also known for its architectural heritage, featuring several turn-of-the-century style churches, a unique Gothic-like water treatment plant and most prominently, the " Castle," Saginaw�s first post office, now a historical museum. The west side features "Old Saginaw," several blocks of well-preserved Victorian style buildings containing unique shops and restaurants, a great place for a night out on the town.
