|Reading is located in western Hillsdale County on M-49, approximately 10 miles from the Indiana state line. This town is supported economically by local stores and small businesses, agriculture and partly as a commuter city to the Hillsdale and Coldwater areas. It also has an industrial park, supported by several manufacturing facilities, including specialty metal production. |
This community began in 1840 when settlers named it Basswood Corners, after a clump of basswood trees nearby. In 1869, the railroad came through and built a station there. At that time, it was renamed after the township, which in turn was named after Reading, Pennsylvania. It eventually was incorporated as a village in 1873. It was incorporated as a city in 1934.
