Thinking about Raisin Township?
A Great Place to Live!
Raisin Township is located in South East Michigan, approximately 45 minutes south of Ann Arbor and Detroit Metropolitan Airport, and 45 minutes north of Toledo. The township is bordered by Tecumseh City to the North and Adrian City to the South.
The township is named for the “River Raisin” which nearly divides the township in half. In the South you’ll find farmland that has been farmed from as far back as the earliest settlers.
The Township has a Police Department and a Fire Department. We also have an extensive Building Department that caters to our residents as well as the residents in nearby townships. Raisin Township is “School of Choice” which means that your children’s educational needs can be met by giving parents the choice as to where their kids will attend school. These elements makes our township a safer place where our families can grow and prosper.
If you love quaint Midwestern style cities, check out both Tecumseh and Adrian, where you can enjoy shopping, cafes and restaurants. The City of Adrian offers advance education, with Adrian College and Sienna Heights University, along with Jackson Community College, all minutes from Raisin Township.
If you’re looking for the bigger city flare without its congestion and cost, you can be in Ann Arbor or Toledo in under an hour. Ann Arbor is nationally known for its University and Hospital system and Toledo has one of the best Zoos in the country. Michigan International Speedway is 45 minutes to the West, and when it’s time to fly, Detroit Metropolitan International Airport is only 60 minutes to the Northeast, and let’s not forget Detroit, its Casinos, and the Internationally renowned Auto Show. There is just simply too much to list.
Simply stated, Raisin Township is literally in the middle of it all, but you’d never know it! With very low congestion, low taxes and quiet living, this Midwestern Township is a great place to settle down.
