Chelsea

Overview

Chelsea · Dexter · Saline

First a shopping and service center for nearby farmers, then a stop on the busy Michigan Central Railroad, Chelsea flourishes today as an attraction in its own right: its theater, dining, shopping, and nearby recreational opportunities have made it a regional destination. While greater Chelsea includes many country homes and subdivisions in nearby townships, it also retains much of early architecture, from early nineteenth-century Greek Revival farmhouses to elegant Italianate storefronts and Victorian-era industrial enterprises. Looming above it all are the silos and plant of Chelsea-based Jiffy baking mixes, a home-grown business that went national.
