Shopping Downtown Gladwin

Gladwin is full of rich history dating back to 1793.

Gladwin County was named for British Major Henry Gladwin of Fort Detroit. He was known for defending the fort at Detroit during the 1793 several month long siege, lead by Chief Pontiac.

The year was 1861 the city of Gladwin (being just a few miles out) was about to receive its first American settlers. The settlers were Marvel Secord and his family, whom by means of the Tittabawassee River came upon the mouth of the Sugar River by canoe. And henceforth, the settlement of Gladwin County began.

It wasn’t until the 1880’s, that the county began further development. It was the thick white pine forests that began to draw the establishment of many lumber towns.
