A Brief Introduction

Unveiling the Fascinating History of San Marino

The Republic of San Marino, Europe’s oldest republic, boasts a captivating past rooted in the heart of Italy’s Emilia Romagna region. Founded in A.D. 301 by Saint Marino, a stone mason seeking refuge from Roman persecution, the republic established itself on democratic principles. 

Established by Sammarinese immigrants in the Detroit metropolitan area, The San Marino Club was founded in 1938. Its purpose was to provide a sense of community and cultural connection for Sammarinese-Americans who had settled in the Detroit area. The club quickly became a hub for social gatherings, celebrations, and community events. 

In 1976, The San Marino Club expanded its facilities and services, transforming from a modest Detroit social club into the premier banquet and event venue, open to the public in Troy Michigan.

Inspired by Mont Titano’s castle-like structures, the San Marino Club facility in Troy stands as a remarkable testament to Sammarinese craftsmanship. From intricate woodwork and coffered ceilings to the radiant skylight illuminating the lobby, every aspect exudes elegance. Its elegant banquet halls and beautiful grounds have hosted countless weddings, corporate events, charity galas, and other special occasions. Reflecting the republic’s grandeur, the club’s doors have always been open to all, inviting everyone to share in the Sammarinese way of life. Come and celebrate with us at The San Marino Club.

The San Marino Club’s story is a testament to the enduring spirit of immigrant communities in the United States and their ability to create institutions that celebrate their heritage while contributing to the cultural fabric of their adopted home. It has played a vital role in preserving and sharing Sammarinese culture and traditions in the Detroit area while serving as a gathering place for families and friends to create cherished memories.
