Stress Removed - Excellent Moving Experience
From start to finish Rose Moving handled it all.  We recently moved back to Michigan from Tennessee.  What could have been a very stressful move could not have gone smoother.  Rose Moving picked up our belongings the day before we closed on our TN home and delivered to our new Michigan home right after we closed.  Jim and Beverly from the office were both very professional.  Often times they contacted us with the answer before we knew we had a question.  All of our belongings arrived in perfect shape.  The movers at both homes were very professional and made sure they placed the furniture exactly where you wanted it.  Thanks Rose - you made it easy!

Gladwin (Get Moves Estimate for Gladwin, MI) is a county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the population was 25,692. The county seat is Gladwin (Gladwin, MI Moving).


Before there was Gladwin (Get Move Cost for Gladwin, MI)

Gladwin (Get Relocation Cost for Gladwin, MI) is a headwaters area. Most of the water that flows out of the county via the Tittabawasee river comes from Gladwin (Get Moving Cost for Gladwin, MI), only a very small portion flows in from Clare or Roscommon counties. Native Americans crossed this area, and even spent summers here where the fishing was good and summer berries plentiful.

Research is underway to determine the importance of an ancient trail that was noted by the crew of the 1839 re-survey of Township 17 north Range 2 west, which later became Beaverton (Beaverton, MI Moving). The eastern terminus of the "Muskegon River Trail" was plotted at the confluence of the three branches of the Tobacco (Assa-mo-quoi-Sepe) River in the northwest corner of Section 12. It is possible that an early cross-country route from Saginaw Bay to Lake Michigan proceeded up the Saginaw, Tittabawasee and Tobacco Rivers to approximately the point west across Ross Lake from the Beaverton City Cemetery. At that point the canoes would be portaged along the trail to the Muskegon river, then floated down to Lake Michigan.

Many native artifacts have been found along that route that attest to seasonal occupation, but so far no signs have been found to indicate any permanent, year-around settlement.

Europeans Arrive

The earliest documented visitors to the area that later became Gladwin (Get Movers Cost for Gladwin, MI) were the surveyors who platted that land according to the provisions of the Northwest Ordinance. Most of the early work was completed during the 1830s. Unfortunately, parts of the first survey were actually done in a bar room in Saginaw. The surveyors had predicted it would be centuries before anyone would move to such a God-forsaken, mosquito-infested swamp.

The earliest census to mention residents in the area was in 1860.

The county is named for Henry Gladwin, British military commandant at Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Moving Companies) in 1763 during Pontiac's War. The county was set off and named in 1831 and organized in 1875.

County Celebrates First Settler Sesquicentennial

The year 2011 will mark 150 years since the first permanent settler, Marvel Secord, took up residence along the Tittabawassee River in what is now Secord (Secord, Michigan Relocation Company). He was a trapper and trader who provided supplies to lumbering camps in the area.

Another man may have had the right to claim first settler status. The 1860 census listed 14 residents, including two families with children. Of these, 11 were associated with lumbering camps that had begun to appear that year, and three were listed as "hunters." One of the "day laborers" at a camp, however, moved with his family to Gladwin (Get Movers Quote for Gladwin, MI) at a later date. If we can document and verify his residence as permanent, then he could be considered. Not too likely since there appear to be no marriages, deaths or births attributed to his surname in succeeding years.

There will be a large celebration and a new book about the history of Gladwin (Get Moving Quote for Gladwin, MI). The celebration weekend is scheduled for July 29, 30 & 31, 2010. The new book will be presented at a reception on the 28th of July, 2010.


According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 516.43 square miles (1,337.5 km2), of which 506.80 square miles (1,312.6 km2) (or 98.14%) is land and 9.63 square miles (24.9 km2) (or 1.86%) is water.

The county government operates the jail, maintains rural roads, operates the major local courts, keeps files of deeds and mortgages, maintains vital records, administers public health regulations, and participates with the state in the provision of welfare and other social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget but has only limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions — police and fire, building and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc. — are the responsibility of individual cities and townships.
