Platted in 1836 by Lucius Lyon. When Lyon surveyed the town, he noted a large American Indian Village (Cocoosh’s) along the left bank of the Grand, a little north of Devore Island. William Hunt’s Trading Post (1830) was on the bluff near the Grand River fording place (present bridge site). The first bridge was built by Lucius Lyon in 1837, was washed out in 1857 and replaced by a truss iron bridge in 1881.
