Simon Langell, Master Shipbuilder and Mayor of St. Clair

Simon Langell was a well-known Great Lakes ship builder during the late 1800’s and Mayor of St. Clair at the turn of the century.  His shipyard was located on the Pine River where the St. Clair Boat Harbor currently resides.

To fully enjoy St. Clair’s Historical Walk you need an electronic device that reads “QR” codes.

On both sides of Clinton Ave. there are pedestals with mosaics of some of the boats that he built, his shipyard and house.  In addition to the mosaics, each pedestal has a “QR” code that will take you to a website that has additional information.
