Saint Claire Shores Background:
St. Clair Shores is a suburban city bordering Lake St. Clair in Macomb County Michigan. It forms a part of the Metro Detroit area, and is located approximately 13 miles (21 km) northeast of downtown Detroit. The population was 59,715 at the 2010 census. The current mayor is Kip C.

Saint Claire Shores History:
The area was inhabited by French settlers as early as 1710, at which time it was called L’anse Creuse. (L’anse Creuse was also the name of a stop on the now-defunct interurban railroad off of Jefferson Ave near Nine Mile Road, and the name lives on today in the L’Anse Creuse Public Schools in central Macomb County, MI and L’Anse Creuse High School in Harrison Twp.)
From 1843 until 1911, St. Clair Shores was a part of Erin Township, parts of which make up today’s Eastpointe, Roseville, and St. Clair Shores. In 1911, the eastern portion of the township now occupied by St. Clair Shores was partitioned from Erin Township to become Lake Township. Lake Township existed until 2009, when residents of the village of Grosse Pointe Shores (that portion of Grosse Pointe Shores in Macomb County located within Lake Township) voted to incorporate as a city.
A community called Eagle Pointe was established along the part of the lakeshore in 1916

Saint Claire Shores Trivia:
The city once was home to an amusement park named Jefferson Beach. Built in 1927, it featured the longest roller coaster in the United States. In 1955, a fire destroyed several buildings in the park. While Jefferson Beach attempted to rebuild, its owners slowly converted the park to a marina. In 1959, the remaining amusement park buildings were demolished to make room for the marina.
