About Clarkston Michigan
Clarkston is also known by the more formal name of “The City of the Village of Clarkston.” This long, proper name for a city, with less than 1,000 inhabitants, comes from its history. Clarkston was founded in 1830 by a squatter, named Linux Jacox. It was two years before a second home was built. It became an incorporated village in 1884, and then, in 1992, it incorporated as a city.
While Clarkston may be tiny, it makes up for that by having quite a bit of remarkable character. Some beautiful and luxurious mansions on the lakeside are outstanding examples of American architecture from the previous century. There are over 100 homes in Clarkson’s Historic District. A walking tour of the vintage homes is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
Clarkston is only 42 miles north of Detroit. The proximity to Detroit, known as “Motor City,” and it’s lakeside location attracted Henry Ford, the founder of The Ford Motor Company. Ford owned a summer home in Clarkston that was on the lake and a weekend cottage on Main Street. Ford operated a mill in the area called Mill Pond in the center of town. This heritage building now contains art galleries mixed with office space.
