History of the society
- The Cornish Connection of Lower Michigan (CCLM) is a nonprofit organization based here in the Flint and Detroit metro areas of Michigan. Our purpose is to preserve and promote our Cornish history and heritage. The CCLM was formed in 1995 by descendants of Cornish immigrants. Many of our ancestors came to Michigan to work in the copper mines of the Upper Peninsula. Later, they began moving south to look for work in the auto industry.
