Search Mount Clemens Michigan

Mount Clemens is in Macomb County (of which it is the county seat), and in the Southeast Region. This community is located just northeast of Detroit between St Clair Shores and New Baltimore along Interstate 94 near Anchor Bay and Lake St Clair. Mount Clemens is part of the Detroit, Michigan metro area.

Mount Clemens was originally surveyed in 1795 by Christian Clemens, who settled in the area four years later. Clemens and John Brooks built-up a distillery, which helped settle the area. Brooks and Clemens platted the land, and the town was named after Clemens in 1818. In 1821 this settlement received a post office, with John Stockton as the first postmaster. It was incorporated as a city in 1879.

Today, Mount Clemens' downtown section shows a lot of old and new architecture, with great places to shop. This section of town is known for its Coney Island hot dogs. The river front board walk and marina is a popular site to relax.
