First settled in 1805, Algonac was originally called Pointe du Chene (Oak Point).  Indian agent Henry Rowe Schoolcraft coined the name Algonac from the Algonquin Indian Tribe and the suffix "ac" meaning place.
In 1922, Christopher Columbus Smith and his four sons, Jay ., Bernard, Owen and Hamilton, established the Chris Smith and Sons Boat Company in Algonac.  For more than sixty years, this worldwide boat building empire was a leader in producing standardized powered pleasure boats.  The Chris Craft plant employed many area residents.  
Algonac is a boating and waterfront community offering many seasonal water activities, as well as marinas, shopping, dining, accommodations, historical museum and many family activities attracting land lovers and seafarers alike.
