Located astride M-46 in Wheeler Township, the village of Breckenridge is an agricultural center that, together with the neighboring community of Wheeler, is home to the Michigan Agricultural Commodities, Inc. or MAC.

A small retail strip along the main thoroughfare offers grocery, floral, antique, hardware, and restaurant establishments

The Amazing Grace Community Center hosts a variety of community events each year, as well as private gatherings. Breckenridge-Wheeler Area Historical Society, Inc., established in 1994, has two museum sites located along the 'plank': The Plank Road Museum commemorating the Saginaw and St. Louis Plank Road, a state road completed in 1870 and now known as M-46 and Drake Memorial House, a museum representing a country doctors home at the turn of the century.

The Breckenridge Area Chamber of Commerce hosts an annual fall festival in September, coinciding with the Breckenridge Community Schools Homecoming festivities, commemorating the original transportation route hewn from the surrounding forests and laid down into Gratiot County from Saginaw, to be followed shortly by rail service.

Freight trains still traverse the tracks that angle across M-46 near the towering M.A.C. silos and the American Legion post.
