At the crossroads of US-131 and US-10, we welcome you to Reed City. We are a bustling community located at the heart of Michigan.
Reed City is also a major crossroads for Michigan's popular Rails-to Trails system. Here, the state's premier trails intersect; the White Pine Trail (running north and south) and the Pere Marquette Trail (east and west). This unique crossing makes us one of Michigan's most important trail communities.
With a friendly home town atmosphere, Reed City invites you to visit, work, and raise your family. We have a vibrant downtown and offer many business opportunities. With our beautiful parks, trails and abundant natural beauty, Reed City is the perfect place to camp and enjoy Michigan's outdoors. In every season, Reed City is your place for outdoor adventure.

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name.
Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933.
Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
