Until 1857 when Port Sanilac was allegedly renamed for a well-known Wyandotte Indian chief, this locale was called Bark Shanty Point, a name stoutly defended in one issue of the village's newspaper, the Bark Shanty Times.
No editors, reporters, printers or editorial policies complicated the production of the paper, which was known throughout the region. Everyone who came through the general store/post office simply wrote news or commentary on a sheet of newsprint kept on the counter. Once thoroughly perused, the edition was bound and filed, and a new one was begun.
