About Our City

Harrison Michigan is near the junction of US 127 and M-61. US 127 actually bypasses the city on the east, though a business route serves the downtown area. Clare is 14 miles (23 km) south on US 127, while Grayling is 40 miles (64 km) to the north. Harrison is bordered along its eastern side by Budd Lake.

Harrison was originally founded as a lumber town, with sawmills located on the shores of Budd Lake. One of the lumber companies donated the land which is now Wilson State Park. The City of Harrison attracts thousands of visitors from throughout the state, with its "twenty lakes in twenty minutes" and large amount of state land for recreational sports.

The biggest local events are the Clare County Fair and Frostbite Open Golf Tournament on Budd Lake.

There are several historic buildings in the city of Harrison. The Surrey House is a relic of the lumber town days. The Clare County Newspaper building, located downtown, is the oldest building in Harrison, dating back to 1898. 

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.03 square miles (10.44 km2), of which 3.72 square miles (9.63 km2) is land and 0.31 square miles (0.80 km2) is water.



We have recently updated our Capital Improvement Plan, Master Plan, and Zoning Ordinance. Please take a few minutes to look over the new documents:
