Introduction to Garden City, Michigan
Garden City History
Garden City originated when Andrew Jackson transferred 160 acres of property to John Lathers in the 1800s. The home sites were segmented into one acre plots so that adequate farming land would be available to each family. In June 1927, Garden City was incorporated as a village. However, six years later, in 1933, Garden City was reincorporated as a city.
