The Selinsky-Green Farmhouse Museum, located behind the St. Clair Shores Public Library, represents the history of a family typical of the late nineteenth-century settlers in this area.
John and Mary Selinsky, Polish immigrants, came to Erin Township (now St. Clair Shores) in 1868, bought the property, and built their salt-box structure of log timber framework. They sold it to their daughter Ernestine when she married German immigrant John Green in 1874.
The Green descendants lived in the house until 1974 when the State Highway Commission bought the house and land to make way for the I-696/I-94 interchange.
After acquiring the property, the City of St. Clair Shores moved the museum to its present location and put it under the direction of its Historical Commission. It's now in the Michigan state register of historical sites.
The Farmhouse has been meticulously restored over the past years by our dedicated volunteers. Thanks to them, this piece of St. Clair Shores' history has been preserved and restored for future generations.
Visit the museum every Wednesday and Saturday to see the history up close and keep on the look out for special museum events.
