History of Macomb County
Macomb County was established on January 15, 1818, as the third county in the Michigan territory. It was named in honor of General Alexander Macomb, a highly decorated veteran of the War of 1812. It covered a much larger area back then than it does today. Large portions of the county were separated in 1819 and 1820 to form the counties of Oakland, Lapeer, Genesee, and St. Clair.
During the 17th century, the first Europeans settled in the area. They included French fur trappers who recognized the wealth of the marshes and sought out new commercial opportunities. In 1782, Moravian missionaries established the county’s first organized non-native settlement as a refuge for Christianized Indians displaced from Ohio. Four years later, the Chippewa Indians forced them to abandon their settlements along the Clinton River, then known as the Huron River. Christian Clemens visited the area in the late 1790s and, in March 1800, purchased the first structure on the future site of Mount Clemens, a distillery. The following year, he bought 500 acres for development. High Banks was platted as the Village of Mount Clemens in 1818, when it was designated as the Macomb County Seat.
In the early 1800s and no later than 1840, settlers moved into the interior of the county and cleared the hardwood forests to create farms. By this time, the villages and townships of the county had taken root. In addition to the original French and English settlers, later European immigrants included Germans, Belgians, and others.
In the 1870s, Mount Clemens gained international recognition due to its mineral baths. Many believed the waters to have curative properties. Even though the stream still flows beneath the city, the spas fell out of favor in the early 20th century. St. Joseph Hospital in Mount Clemens is now offering mineral baths, which have recently experienced a resurgence in popularity.
Between 1920 and 1930, the population of Macomb County increased from 38,103 to 77,146. This growth was stimulated by two significant events: the establishment of Selfridge Field in 1917 and the beginning of the urbanization movement northward from Detroit. During the 1940s and 1950s, there was an increase in suburbanization from the city center. Over 440,000 people were added to Macomb County’s population between 1950 and 1970, the period of greatest growth.
Today, Macomb County encompasses 482 square miles and ranks third in the state in terms of population, with 788,149 residents as of the 2000 census. The county is a leader in business and industry, and the State of Michigan has designated it a “Community of Economic Excellence.”
