Mission Statement
The Macomb County Historical Society and its Crocker House Museum provide educational experiences of Mount Clemens and Macomb County history through the use of artifacts, rotating exhibits, publications, stories, and special educational programs. Our purpose is to collect and preserve our local heritage to instill an appreciation of our community’s unique history.

Why Support the Macomb County Historical Society?
Over fifty years ago, individuals formed the Macomb County Historical Society with the purpose of preserving our local history. If not for their effort and your help in maintaining this mission, many of our local historical artifacts and documents would have been lost. We receive no government funding. The only way we can continue our mission of preserving and sharing local history is through generous donations, fundraising, and memberships. Thankfully, our friends recognize the importance of preserving local history. Your contribution helps to insure our growth and security for future generations.
