Lapeer County, Michigan

Lapeer derives it's name from the French and Indian traders who traveled the Flint River. The river's rocky bed suggested "The Stone" or in French "LePierre", the English translation being "Lapeer".

The Lapeer County courthouse, of Greek Revival architecture, is the oldest courthouse still is use in Michigan. It was built in 1846 by Alvin Hart, a state senator, and was rented to the county for one dollar.

Today, Lapeer is a well-balanced community of farms, small industry, and urban residents, serving the heavy industry of Oakland and Genessee counties.
