The city of Hillsdale is located in Southeast Michigan, Its name identifies the hills and dales of Hillsdale County with its quiet, natural, rural beauty, complemented by streams, woods, lakes, and wildlife. Big city traffic is quickly forgotten and jaywalking is tolerated in the historic downtown district.
Every Saturday, the fairgrounds hosts a farmer’s market with fruit, vegetables, small animals and a flea market. Dozens of antique shops dot the countryside and visitors from nearby metropolitan areas find hidden treasures in our quaint stores.
