A Brief History of the Cass City Area Historical & Genealogy Society

The Cass City Area Historical and Genealogy Society was established in 1977. This was the time of the Bicentennial of the United States and also the publication of Alex Haley's novel "Roots". Both of these events, no doubt, stirred up the revival of interest in local history and genealogy.

The primary area of concern for the historical society is the village of Cass City and the townships of Elkland, Novesta, Elmwood, Evergreen and Greenleaf. Membership includes people from those areas along with individuals who live in other parts of the country but have a connection either because they have lived here at one time or have ancestors from the area.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Cass City Area Historical and Genealogy Society is to bring together people interested in local history, to promote knowledge and appreciation of the history of the Cass City Area and to procure such articles as may be deemed worthy of preservation.
