Addison, Michigan

Addison, Michigan


Addison is located on the northwestern border of Lenawee County along US-27. This is a rural but picturesque town situated on a hill overlooking a small creek, complete with dam and mill pond.   It has about a dozen stores and a few small manufacturing facilities. It also has its own school system and village form of government.

Addison’s recorded history goes back to 1835 when its first settler, John Talbot, built a grist mill here. At that time, he called the town Manetau. Several businessmen moved here afterwards and more mills were built, with names changing several times: Peru, Brownell’s Mills, Jackson’s Mills and Harrison. In 1851, Addison J. Comstock, a banker from Adrian, purchased a huge chunk of land here and registered it under "Addison," and the name took hold. The town was incorporated into a village in 1893.
