So, I did some research and realized that it was named after Russell Alexander Alger. Russell Alexander Alger was a Governor of Michigan from 1885 to 1887 and also served Michigan as a US Senator. I have talked about Alger Heights as being a great place to raise a family in other posts and guess what!? Alger raised 12 kids there! That’s a lot of kids.
I wonder what home was his and does it still stand to this day? If anyone knows please let me know.
