Shiawassee County, Michigan

Shiawassee County, Michigan

Shiawassee County is named for its principal river the Shiawassee River. Shiawassee is thought to be an Indian word meaning "river that twists about."

A fur trader named Henry Bolieu set up a trading post on the Shiawassee River around 1816. A few years later an Indian reservation was created in Shiawassee County. A great influx of immigrants came in 1836, with settlement beginning on the Shiawassee River and gradually spreading throughout the county.

Today Shiawassee County is a prominent agricultural county with over 2,000 farms producing soybeans, beans, oats, winter wheat, corn, hay, peppermint, dairy herds, and poultry. Manufacturing concerns are diversified, including a vitrified tile plant at Corunna, one of a few in the state.
