Rose Moving and Storage were the BEST!
Jim came to our home and gave us a very fair and thorough estimate. Movers were great, as well! Steve and his crew took great care in moving all of our household items with nothing damaged. Beverly was wonderful, and she checked on us throughout and after the move. In the past, we have had terrible experiences! Trust me, you get what you pay for. We highly recommend this company, and will use them again for our future move.

Dexter (Get Moving Estimate for Dexter, MI) is a village in Washtenaw (Washtenaw, MI Movers) in the U.S. state of Michigan. The majority of the village is in the northwest corner of Scio Township with a small portion (approximately 200 homes) in Webster Township. The population was 4,067 at the 2010 census. Between 2000 and 2010, Dexter's population grew 62.9%, the largest population growth in the state of Michigan during that time period. There is no political connection between the Village of Dexter and the nearby Township of Dexter, which is located to the northwest of the municipality. The township was named for Judge Samuel William Dexter, but he named the village for his father Samuel Dexter, the early American statesman.

History

Monument Park

The area was first settled in 1824, 13 years before Michigan became a state, when land speculator Samuel W. Dexter (Get Moving Cost for Dexter, MI) purchased a large tract of land and originated the village. It was known as "Mill Creek Settlement" until the village was platted in 1830 and the name officially changed to Dexter (Get Moving Quote for Dexter, MI).

Mill Creek and the Huron River, which form much of the western and northeastern boundaries of the village, respectively, have long been valuable resources to Dexter. A sawmill was built in 1827, a woolen mill in 1838, a grist mill in 1844, and a cider mill in 1886. After being appointed County Court Justice in 1826, Judge Dexter reportedly established a post office in his home, shuttling mail between there and Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan Moving Companies) on horseback.

The village founder Samuel W. Dexter served as the chief justice of the Washtenaw (Washtenaw, Michigan Relocation Company) Court as well as being elected a University of Michigan regent. His home just southwest of the village overlooking the Huron River was built in the early 1840s in Greek Revival architecture and is a recognizable landmark in the area. Samuel Dexter called it Gordon Hall to honor his mother's family. It and 70 acres (280,000 m2) of surrounding property was gifted to the University of Michigan in 1950 by Katherine Dexter (Get Move Estimate for Dexter, MI) McCormick. It is said that Gordon Hall served as a refuge for slaves on the Underground Railroad.

On Thursday, March 15, 2012, Dexter (Get Moving Estimate for Dexter, MI) was struck by a large EF3 tornado causing substantial damage to local houses and businesses but spared lives and no injuries were reported.
