Due to the extremely harsh seasons and illnesses, Fort Saginaw was abandoned by 1824. By the late 1820s the American Fur Company was operating a post at Saginaw. Few plots were sold and after the U.S. Army pulled out, the town languished for most of the following decade. The town was re-platted in December 1830, comprising riverfront from Cass Street, on the south, to Harrison Street, and north to Jefferson. These plots sold slowly. By 1835, only 24 plots had been sold and the remainder were transferred to a new owner, who made another plat in February 1837. However, the financial crisis of the Panic of 1837 dampened interest in purchasing properties. After selling only 58 out of the 407 plots, the remainder was sold again in 1841. thumb 215px A faceoff during the game (Image:OHL-Hockey-Plymouth-Whalers-vs-Saginaw-Spirit.jpg) The 2005-2006 Ontario Hockey League (w:Ontario Hockey League) season kicked off to a start Wednesday night at Wendler arena in The Dow Event Center (w:The Dow Event Center) in Saginaw, Michigan, USA (w:Saginaw, Michigan) with the Saginaw Spirit (w:Saginaw Spirit) hosting the Plymouth Whalers (w:Plymouth Whalers), with over 4,600 people attending.

Saginaw, Michigan

'''Saginaw'''

The city of Saginaw was a thriving lumber town in the 19th century and an important industrial city and manufacturing center throughout much of the 20th century. However, by the late 20th century, Saginaw's industry and its once-strong manufacturing presence declined, leading to increasing unemployment, crime, and a decrease in population (population decline).

Currently, economic development is focused on comparative advantages in innovation, clean energy, and continued manufacturing exports. Compared to other mid-sized communities, Saginaw has a disproportionately high number of patents per employee, and more than 81 times the average US share of jobs in photovoltaic technology research and production. The city continues to have a higher proportion of manufacturing jobs in comparison to the US.
