About Frontenac

* Frontenac is really two small communities, Old Frontenac and New Frontenac. Neither is incorporated. Old Frontenac has no retail businesses.

* Old Frontenac was considered the "Newport of the Northwest" during the late 1880s.

* Old Frontenac was platted and developed by a Dutch immigrant, Evert Westervelt, and two brothers, Israel and Lewis Garrard, who were sons of the family that founded Cincinnati. Their stepfather, John McLean, was a U.S. Supreme Court justice in the mid-1880s who wrote the dissenting opinion in the Dred Scott case.
