1. Saginaw Club Marker
Inscription.  Organized April 18, 1889, the club's membership was comprised of most of the leading business and civic figures of Saginaw. One of the first items of business was preparation for a club house. Architect W.T. Cooper furnished plans, and ground was broken on July 1, 1889. Described as a monument to "enterprise, sagacity, and liberality," the club house was opened on May 29, 1890. The inaugural event was a full-dress ball attended by 800 guests. Only slightly modified from its original design, the Saginaw Club has graced the main street of town for over eighty years.
 
Erected 1974 by Michigan History Division, Department of State. (Marker Number L290.)
