While out exploring Michigan I like to go and visit small towns I have never been to before, and see what there is. I love it when they still have a historic downtown area like the one in Lowell. If I am really adventurous, I just look at the map, and find a town I have never been to, and take a drive there just to see what is there. hopefully, I will find something interesting along the way also but I guess you will never know unless you make the journey.
Lowell was founded as a trading post on the south bank of the Grand River in 1831 by Daniel Marsac. In 1847, he purchased land on the north side of the river and platted it as “Dansville”. In 1851, a post office was established there named “Lowell” after the township. The community was replatted in 1854 and renamed after the post office. It incorporated as a village in 1861.
