Introduction to Marysville, Michigan
Marysville is said to have been named after Mary Mills, the wife of a local sawmill owner. Though St. Clair County was not founded until 1820, the first explorers arrived in 1679. It was first explored by Rene Robert Cavelier and Sieur de La Salle, who named the county after Lake St. Clair and because of the fact that they had arrived on the feast day of Saint Clair of Assisi.
