Clare County was one of several counties in Michigan renamed around 1840 with Irish names as a tribute to the burgeoning Irish and Scottish populations. It was named after County Clare in Ireland. Au Sable State Forest, previously a large lumber source, is located within Clare. The forest was converted to a state forest after lumber operations and wildfires all but stripped it clean, but it has rebounded into a valuable area to Michigan in the years since.
