Mount Clemens Factoids - CSX City of the Week

Congratulations to Mount Clemens,

You're the WCSX City of the Week

Mount Clemens factoids:

  • Mt. Clemens got the nick name “Bath City” from the numerous mineral spas that used to exist there.  For more than a hundred years (1873-1974) tourism related to mineral baths was Mt. Clemens biggest industry.  Clark Gable, Mae West, Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey all went to Mt. Clemens for mineral baths.
  • Wally Weber, University of Michigan football player, assistant football coach and Hall of Honor inductee.
  • Mt. Clemens was first surveyed in 1795 after the American Revolutionary War by Christian Clemens.  Clemens and his friend, John Brooks, built a distillery, which attracted workers and customers, helping to settle the area. The town was named after Clemens in 1818.
