View of Mt. Clemens, Macomb
County, M.I., 1881 / drawn & published by J. J. Stoner.
This panoramic view print of Mt. Clemens, Michigan was drawn and published by J. J. Stoner, Beck & Pauli Lith. in 1881. Mount Clemens was settled in the early 1800's northeast of Detroit near Lake St. Clair.
Mount Clemens later became a health resort destination that was accessed by way of the Grand Trunk Railroad. The map advertising the benefits of the healthful community states: “Mount Clemens, is fast becoming celebrated for its Medicinal Spring. Thousands of people come here from all parts of the country, to bath in its health giving water, and it is proved by accurately kept statistics that 90 per cent of the visitors are greatly benefited and at least 50 per cent permanently cured. All forms of rheumatism, neuralgia, sciatica and paralysis, are cured here, while the water sold by the druggist is becoming famous for the cure of kidney complaints, dyspepsia, liver complaints, catarrh and chronic diarrhea. All forms of blood and skin diseases yield readily to the use of the water and baths. The hotels have a capacity for 500 guests and private boarding houses accommodate as many more.”
