Britton, Michigan - 49229

 

Britton, Michigan


 

 

 

 


Britton is located on the near northeastern edge of Lenawee County along M-50, about nine miles northeast of Adrian. This small community is supported primarily by agriculture and small business, and is situated along an active railroad. A huge grain elevator operates on the north side of the town. The main street area contains some gift, antique and hobby shops, along with a couple of restaurants and a food market.

Historically, this community originated when the Wabash Railroad built a station here in 1881, naming the town Balch. That same year, John Britton, a storekeeper, started the post office and sought to re-name the town after himself. After some deal-making, waiting and a payment of $500.00, he was able to convince the railroad to do this in 1888.
