Serving the Island for over 75 years!
The Association’s roots go back as far as the 1920s. In 1945 the St. Clair Flats Association and the Harsen’s Island Improvement Association, both active organizations on the Island, merged to form the Harsen’s Island St. Clair Flats Association (HISCFA).
Browne’s Field was donated to the HISCFA in 1970 by the late Cecil R. Browne. It has been our responsibility for the last 52 years, through membership dues, your donations and volunteers, to keep this beautiful 10-acre piece of land updated and maintained. The field (park, playground, pickleball/tennis courts and more) enabled the Association to finally have a permanent home for our popular Field Day event held every Summer. It's also become the home for many other HISCFA events and community gatherings such as the annual car show (up to 200 vehicles!), Music in the Park concerts, and the fall Bonfire & Barbeque.
Many things have changed on the Island but one thing that hasn’t changed is the sense of community and belonging that membership affords. With that said, we look forward to increasing membership and volunteerism in the coming years, and working together to fulfill our goals and continue to keep Harsen’s Island the special place that it is.
Browne's Field is maintained and operated by HISCFA. It's a park that's enjoyed year round by all Islanders.
