Caro was originally known as Centerville when it was first settled in 1855. However, the first police station that was established was called Tuscola Center. The two different names caused much confusion and annoyance. After many years of controversy, the name Caro (short for Cairo, Egypt) was decided upon in 1869.

In the early 1900's, Caro's huge sugar refining company became the second largest beet sugar factory in America. The formula for the soft drink Pepsi-Cola was devised by one of the factory's early employees.

Caro is the seat of Tuscola County and is surrounded by rich farmland. Many industries have also contributed to Caro's commercial prosperity. Located near the Cass River, Caro hosts the annual Tuscola County Pumpkin Festival each year in October.
