About Us

The Lakeshore Guardian is your monthly “Good News” newspaper, distributed through Michigan’s Huron, Sanilac, St. Clair, and Tuscola Counties, also known as Michigan's Thumb. The Lakeshore Guardian was founded in 1999 with the ambition of uniting Lake Huron’s shoreline community. Since then, our growth has achieved that goal and so many more.  The Guardian continues to watch over shoreline interests in a print publication that is distributed freely.

We are a researcher’s treasure-trove. Each issue is chock-full of informative articles about our Great Lakes maritime industry; local history; Huron County’s one-room schoolhouses; genealogy research tips; historical fiction; biographical sketches honoring our veterans; Michigan travel destinations and beyond; health and wellness; preserving our environment; hunting and fishing for the outdoor enthusiast; trivia; humor; and memories of the way it was in the good old days.
