R.A. Booth, vice president of the Booth-Kelly Lumber Co., informed the complier that this place was named by J.I. Jones for Saginsaw, Michigan. The community was established about a year before the lumber company began to operate there. Gannett says that saginsaw is an Ojibwa word meaning Sauk place, referring to the Sauk or Sac Indians. Saginsaw post office, with Laura Weaver first postmaster, operated from March 1898 to July 1957.
