Information About Park/Area:
History of Almont -- Almont was an important community during the settlement of Lapeer and Sanilac Counties and the lumbering industry that was the foundation of the economy at the time. The railroad line that eventually reached Almont in 1882 was a narrow gauge branch of the Port Huron and Northwest Railroad. The railroad was never extended and was abandoned in 1942. The first electric streetcar from Detroit reached Almont in 1914. The streetcar also brought electricity with it, as Almont was one of the first communities in the area to be served by electric power. The streetcar was later extended to Imlay City and served the community until 1925.
All About Almont -- Founded in 1833, Almont is the sixth oldest village in the State of Michigan.
