Stanton, Michigan

Stanton is located in the heart of Montcalm County and is the county seat. Its economic base includes agriculture, tourism and services. Stanton has a strong school system and is less than five miles from Montcalm Community College. The picturesque downtown area with its well cared for turn-of-the-century buildings is situated on a hill facing east. In August, Stanton celebrates its Old Fashioned Days.

Stanton was organized in 1860 when the people of Montcalm County voted to move the county seat here from Greenville, which was the original county seat since 1840. At that time, the County Board purchased 40 acres from Fred Hall of Ionia and named the city "Fred" in his honor. The first settler, Levi Camburn, moved here in 1862. The city was renamed for then Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton in 1863. It was incorporated as a village in 1869 and later as a city in 1881.
