The Village of Alanson is serenely nestled on the bank of the Crooked River, a major link in the Inland Waterway of Northern Michigan, making it easily accessible by either boat or automobile. We are conveniently located 10 miles north of Petoskey on U.S. 31 and M-68. The Village was first settled in 1875 and incorporated in 1905 during the great Michigan lumber boom. Our Village retains the character of that bygone era even though visitors will find the sawmills are long gone. The Downtown area is contained in several short blocks that place many shops and SERVICES:  Building, Dental, Personal, Professional, Medical, Real Estate, Rental, Repair, etc.:  Building, Dental, Personal, Professional, Medical, Real Estate, Rental, Repair, etc.within easy walking distance. Shoppers can browse for antiques, flowers, fresh baked goodies or visit the hairdresser, bank and post office. The are restaurants galore, a first class hotel, and a hardware store that is a historical landmark. For tranquility, walk the boardwalk along the river, sit on the Island for a fresh breeze off the water, or sit among the fragrant flowers on the Hillside Gardens. You will find Alanson is “a Place to Enjoy….a Place to Remember”.
