Lenawee County, Michigan




 

Lenawee County, Michigan

Lenawee County, Michigan

Lenawee County was first settled by a group of 30 New Yorkers who founded the city of Tecumseh on the River Raisin in May 1824. The name 'Lenawee' comes from a Shawnee word for 'Indian'.

In the mid 1800's, Lenawee County was a leader both in population and agriculture in Michigan. Lenawee's population growth slowed in the late 1800's but its agriculture and diverse economy kept it strong. There was production of railroad cars, wire fencing, and a small number of automobiles.

Today, both agriculture and industry remain strong in Lenawee County. This area includes the scenic Irish Hills area, Michigan International Speedway, Hidden Lakes Gardens, Hayes State Park and the Cambridge Junction historical area.
