Dexter, Michigan


Dexter, Michigan

Dexter, Michigan

Dexter is located in western Washtenaw County, about 6 miles northwest of Ann Arbor, with easy access to I-94 just a few miles south. It is supported by a diverse economy and its location as a commuter town to Ann Arbor. It has an active rail line and is bordered by the Huron River Metro Parkway system to the north. A dam on Mill Creek a block south of its historic downtown circle adds a picturesque touch to this well-preserved area.

Dexter was named after Judge Samuel Dexter, who purchased the first land here in 1824. Shortly afterwards, a Dr. Cyril Nichols and Samuel Foster settled here, adding some permanence to the community. Two years later, Judge Dexter became the first postmaster. The town�s land was officially platted in 1830 and was eventually incorporated as a village in 1855.
