Saline Local Historic Districts

Saline's local historic districts were established between 2002 and 2007. The districts represent significant early patterns of growth in Saline.  Many of the residences within the districts are associated with significant persons in Saline's history, including state and local politicians, prominent merchants, and Saline's founder, Orange Risdon.

For further information, please click on the "Saline History" link on the Saline District Library's Research & Learn page for databases of historical newspapers and photos.
