Saginaw is a city in Michigan and is also the county seat of Saginaw County. Saginaw is located in the webbing of the Michigan mitten, also referred to as Mid-Michigan or central Michigan. Approximately 52,000 people live in Saginaw, which is part of the Tri-City area comprised of Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland.

A Brief History of Saginaw

Modern-day Saginaw was originally inhabited by members of the Sauk Native American tribe before French traders came to the area in the 17th century. In 1816, American settler Louis Campau established a trading post along the Saginaw River. The U.S. took possession of the post shortly thereafter and the lumber industry exploded. Over the next few decades, many mills and industrial operations were established. In 1889, Saginaw and neighboring-but-separate East Saginaw were consolidated into one city.

Saginaw Today

These days, Saginaw’s population and prosperity have been in decline. Reduced lumber and automobile industry activity has taken a toll on the city. Following a rash of government-funded demolition of abandoned and decrepit buildings, revitalization efforts have been underway in the last few years. Advocates have managed to save many of downtown Saginaw’s buildings from being leveled and instead redeveloped.
