Durand, Michigan

48429

Durand, Michigan Durand is located in southeast Shiawassee County at the junction of M-71 and Interstate 69. In 1876, it was named after George H. Durand, then US Congressman from the 6th District. It was incorporated as a village in 1887 and later as a city in 1932. This community developed its diverse economy around the railroad, being situated at the cross sections of two very busy lines, complete with a Victorian style depot built by the Grand Trunk at the turn of the century. The depot still operates a ticket window for Amtrack passenger service and houses a railroad museum. The city park also displays a "vintage" loco and tender, complete with an old fashioned banjo signal announcing its presence.
