Traverse City is located at the bases of East and West Grand Traverse Bay. It is the County Seat of Grand Traverse County. It was incorporated in 1881 as a village and later as a city in 1885. First settled in the 1850ís by William Boardman near the mouth of the river now named after him, this town developed over lumbering due to itís accessibility to shipping on Lake Michigan. The lumber mill which Boardman and his son started was later bought out by Perry Hannah, who escalated development of the town into a city and is considered its founding father.

 

Traverse City today is known for its scenic beauty, tourism and recent rapid growth. It is a favorite place to begin a vacation due to its central location to so much of the Lake Michigan Coastline and Michiganís great Northland. It has also become a popular place for retirement as well as to locate a business due to its diverse economy. Whether you are out for a day or a week, for the first time or the hundredth, Traverse City is always a nice place to visit
