St. Clair Shores is located in the state of Michigan and a suburban city in Macomb County that borders Lake St. Clair. The area where the present-day St. Clair Shore stands was settled by the French as early as 1710, and the city was called L'anse Creuse. St. Clair Shores was a part of the Erin Township from 1843 to 1911 and formed part of the present-day Eastpoint, the Grosse Pointes, and St. Clair Shores. The township's name was then changed to Lake Township. The name existed until 2009 when the Grosse Pointe's residents voted to incorporate it as a city. It was once the home to the amusement park named Jefferson Beach, and the roller coaster was built in 1927. However, the fire was destroyed in 1955 and destroyed several buildings in the same park. When Jefferson Beach was attempted to be rebuilt, however, the owners slowly converted the garage to a marina.
