Nestled on the scenic Chippewa River, the city of Mount Pleasant, Michigan, is home to a unique community with a vibrant heritage. An area first inhabited by the Saginaw Chippewa tribe, it has evolved from a humble settlement into a center of commerce, relying upon agriculture, lumbering, oil and gas, banking, and higher education throughout its first century. Although the source of its prosperity has changed over the years, Mount Pleasant’s pioneering spirit has remained constant. This book utilizes a collection of archival photographs drawn from the Clarke Historical Library to document Mount Pleasant’s progress and expansion from 1854 through 1954.
