How Michigan's Youngest City Isn't Actually As Young As It Seems
The city we are traveling to today in Michigan, is Brown City, Michigan.

Brown City Michigan & How It's Lying About Their Age!
Botox and other anti-aging products aren't whats keeping this Michigan town young. In fact, it's a rather odd technicality that puts this Michigan town at 25 years old instead of 142 years old...
If we look back to 1998, the answer lies pretty clear in front of us!
Brown City was once a 4th Class City, but because of the residents of the town approved a charter, the city was released from the 4th Class City status.
Back in the city's early days (early 1800's here), the city was best known for supplying lumber and grain to other Michigan communities. You won't find that, or too many tourist attractions in the city. However, if you're looking to check out a new Michigan destination, the city may be the best for you.
