Algonac, Michigan

48001

Algonac, Michigan

First settled in 1805, it was originally called Pointe du Chene (Oak Point). Indian agent Henry Rowe Schoolcraft coined the name Algonac from the Algonquin Indian tribe and the suffix "ac", meaning place.

In 1922, Christopher Columbus Smith and his four sons, Jay W., Bernard, Owen, and Hamilton, established the Chris Smith and Sons Boat Company in Algonac. For more than sixty years, this worldwide boat building empire was a leader in producing standardized powered pleasure boats. The Chris Craft plant employed many area residents.

Algonac is a boating and waterfront community with many new stores and dining spots.
