Farwell, Michigan


Farwell, Michigan  

Farwell is located on the southern border of Clare County. This town was established in 1870 when the Pere Marquette Railroad, building its line from Clare to Ludington, came through here. It was named after Samuel Farwell, a local resident who took a strong interest in the building of the railroad, and who’s father-in-law was the superintendent of the railroad.

It was the first county seat, from 1871 to 1879, and was incorporated as a village in 1879.

Today, Farwell retains its small town atmosphere, supported by small businesses and several manufacturing firms which include the production of vilan and plastics, auto parts and bearings. Farwell also plays a role in local tourism, being close to the "lakes" area in the county and to a ski hill a few miles to the south.
