In 1833, Grand Blanc Township became Genesee County's first unit of government. The railroad, which came in 1862, added more growth to the small community. The Village of Grand Blanc was the first in the state to consolidate its schools in 1904.
A four square mile area in the center of the township was incorporated in 1930 as the City of Grand Blanc. Today the two units of government work cooperatively to provide services for the entire community.
