Itís largest community is Filer City, which is located on the south side of Manistee Lake. This area is a continuation of the greater Manistee community.

This community was founded by Delos L. Filer who built a saw mill here with his sons in 1867. In 1883, a railroad line was built here to accommodate the heavy lumbering in the area. The station was originally nicknamed: "Filerís Switch."
