Rich in history, Fort Gratiot was originally home to historic Fort Gratiot, named after General Charles Gratiot who established a military fort in the early 1800’s.  It is also the original home of the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, the first and oldest light house in the State of Michigan. From its beginnings as a military fort nearly two centuries ago, the Charter Township of Fort Gratiot has grown into a thriving community of over 11,000.

Fort Gratiot is a community on the move: surrounded by scenic beaches, picturesque woodlands, nature preserves, parks, baseball/softball fields, trails and bike paths for hiking and biking, and is only minutes away from shopping, dining and much, much more.  

Fort Gratiot will draw you in with its beautiful scenery and rich natural resources, as well as a solid residential, business and industrial base, fine schools, and progressive government.
