International Shoe was the biggest employer in St Clair from the time it opened in 1922 to 1942 and the plant was in continuous operation until it closed in 1982 when its parent company ran into financial difficulties. The International Shoe Company building was built between 1921-1922 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
