Welcome to St. Clair Historical Museum


The  St. Clair Historical Museum GRAND OPENING will be either March 3 or 4, 2018. All the improvements have been made, city and fire inspections passed, and ready or not, we will be Opening our Doors on one of these dates.
Docents/Volunteers needed to help maintain hours — Just as at the old Museum, someone needs to be there to greet visitors, and our hours will depend on how many people who can donate time on a regular basis to do this.
Interested? Call Carla Wulfers at 636-667-0231 or Jo Schaper at 636-667-4162 or send an email to stclairmomuseum@gmail.com with your contact information and which days and frequency of hours you would be able to help. Training and museum familiarization will be provided to candidates. Dependability is more important than frequency, so serious inquiries only.

Historical Museum Banquet is February 24. Please Come.

The Museum has cleared the last hurdles, and will be open permanently starting the weekend of March 3-4 to help celebrate the 175th Anniversary of St. Clair. Come for a sneak peek 3-5 p.m. on February 24, on your way to our annual banquet!

We’re very grateful to all and we will have a Sponsor Board on display for those who have helped us so far. Want to get on the board? Bring a basket, gift certificates or business coupons for auction and get added to the list! Individuals who have given major gifts ($100 and up) will be recognized as well. Come and join the fun! Tickets? In advance, at businesses, online and at the door.
