Small-town charm. Hundreds of acres of picturesque farmland. These are just a few of the features the village of Grass Lake and surrounding Grass Lake Charter Township have to offer.
The town takes its name from the lake within its borders, accessible from the village’s county park. The lake also hosts powerboat races each summer. Downtown Grass Lake centers around the historic train depot and Whistlestop Park. Local history is further showcased at the Coe House Museum, the Lost Railway Museum, and the Michigan Military Heritage Museum. The village features other amenities, including a library, several restaurants, and even a locally-owned art studio, The Painted Owl.
Numerous events help to bring the community together, including Traffic Jamin’, Heritage Day, Relay for Life, and a weekly farmer’s market from spring until fall. Parades are held in honor of Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, as well as Grass Lake High School’s homecoming festivities. High school sporting events are another town staple, and Grass Lake has no shortage of pride in their Warriors athletic teams.
The village and the township feature numerous family-friendly neighborhoods, including Sandy Ridge, Sandhill Estates, Tamarack Glen, and Wolf Lake Highlands. I-94 is easily accessible for commuters from both Mount Hope Road and Clear Lake Road. Chelsea is just a short drive down Michigan Avenue/Old Us Highway 12, and both Jackson and Ann Arbor are reachable within 30 minutes.
With its peaceful country setting, Grass Lake offers a relaxed pace of life, while still providing easy access to whatever its residents may need. It is a friendly and welcoming community, and in no time, you’ll feel right at home.
