View of Port Huron, St. Clair County, M.I., 1867 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This panoramic print of Port Huron and vicinity was drawn and published by Albert Ruger, Chicago Lith. in 1867. Port Huron was settled along the St. Clair River in the 1840's. The Lake Huron community maintained healthy lumber and shipbuilding industries in the early years.

Later, it held important railroad shops of the Grand Trunk and Port Huron & Lake Michigan railroads.

The first oil to be commercially drilled in North America was at Oil Springs, near Sarnia, in 1858. This led to much activity and interest in the region.

The Port Huron area was later devastated by major fires in 1871 and 1881. Sarnia and Point Roberts, Ontario are visible across the river.

The map includes neighboring communities of Gratiot, Michigan and Sarnia and Point Edwards, Canada. It shows labeled roads, waterways, buildings, port activities and railroad routes.
