Historical Society Presents Displays

Honors Elected Officials Since 1871


CCHS member, Jon H. Ringelberg, presented displays of the Clare County Sheriffs, Treasurers, and Drain Commissioners to be hung in their offices.   The display of the Clare County Surveyors will be completed shortly and will end a 3 year project documenting with available photographs all elected Clare County Officials since March 16, 1871, when Clare County was organized by the Michigan Legislature.

 The goal was to complete the project in time for the sesquicentennial of Clare County, a history of 150 years, in 2021.   Ringelberg stated, “I’m pretty glad to finally get to an end of this project.  Hopefully family members or family descendants of the missing and/or poor quality photographs will provide photographs or better photographs to add to and improve the project.”
