Chesaning (Chi-asin), named by the Chippewa Indians meaning" home of the Big Rock", was incorporated in 1869. Our historic 1937 riverboat may not still be coming around the bend, but this is still Michigan's Historic Showboat City. With just one stroll along our charming boulevard, you'll remember why it feels so great to leave behind the hustle of everyday life and rediscover the simple joys. You'll see it in the local shop owners waving and smiling from their storefronts. In our cozy inns and crop and quilt retreats. Most of all, you'll feel it in the warm, welcoming spirit of our community. Because here, we're all about making our home feel like yours.
