Ogemaw County, Michigan




 

Ogemaw County, Michigan

Ogemaw County, Michigan

Ogemaw County is located in the northeastern section of Michiganís Lower Peninsula. This very hilly and scenic county features many small lakes and streams, including the Rifle River, a canoerís dream-come-true.

The county is named after the Indian title "chief" which in Chippewa is pronounced: "Ogema." The land was originally platted in 1840. The county was organized in 1875, when the first settlers arrived near Ogemaw Springs and set up a lumber mill, about 5 miles from where today stands West Branch, the county seat and largest city in the county. Other prominent communities include Rose City and Prescott.

Today, Ogemaw County retains its country-like charm along with carefully planned growth. Its main economic support comes from tourism, auto-industry related production, plastics manufacturing and agriculture. Oil production can also be found in the southwest corner of the county.
