Algonquin Club of Detroit and Windsor

Established in 1934, the Algonquin Club of Detroit and Windsor is an international, not-for-profit organization of which the focus is the history of the Great Lakes region. The club is staffed entirely by volunteers and is the only known international local historical society.

The group currently has over two hundred members who hold regular monthly meetings from September through May. The meeting locations alternate between the two cities. The club publishes a monthly newsletter called The Algonquin. Other activities that the club participates in are community sponsorship events, such as the annual Local History Conference at Wayne State University in Detroit, of which the club is a founding sponsor, and dinner presentations with keynote speakers presenting on local history.
