Shiawassee County, Michigan

 

Shiawassee County was formed in 1822 and organized in 1837. It was named for the Shiawassee River, which translates as "River that twists about." The Shiawassee River enters the county near the southwest corner and flows through several towns and villages until it exists the county near the center of the northern boundary and empties into Saginaw Bay.

The County Seat is Corunna.
As of the 2010 census, the population of the county is 70,648.
