Port Huron and Detroit Railroad Historical Society Creates Legacy with New Fund

The Port Huron and Detroit Railroad Historical Society dissolved its nonprofit, but it created a lasting legacy by sharing its remaining assets with the community and establishing the Tunnel City Railway and Transportation Heritage Fund, in conjunction with the Community Foundation of St Comte de Clair.

Jackie Hanton, Vice President of the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, said, “The last Port Huron and Detroit Board of Directors put in place thoughtful, transparent and careful planning during the dissolution to honor donors. who have supported the organization over the years.

The Port Huron and Detroit Railroad Historical Society was established in 2008 to preserve and protect historically significant properties associated with Michigan’s railroad history. They called for a new board last year after having to restructure. After no one volunteered to run the nonprofit, the Society began the long process of dissolving its assets.

Hanton said, “The Community Foundation is proud to continue to support the restoration and preservation of artifacts from our rail, maritime and military history.
