The Community   Located approximately 35 miles northwest of downtown Detroit, the City of the Village of Clarkston and Independence Township both represent growing and developing residential choices. The township is characterized as rural, surrounded by thousands of acres of rolling hills, lakes, marshes, woodlands, and meandering country roads. In this rustic hideaway between Detroit and Flint, newcomers can find single-family homes, condominiums, and occasional farmhouses that are ideal for the imaginative conversion to country estates. 


Clarkston's downtown district is designated as a National Historical Site, reflecting all the charm and picturesque magnetism of days gone by. Few locales can weave the spell of Clarkston in taking visitors a step back in time. The city has managed to grow and change without sacrificing the beauty of "yesterday." Most homes are single-family and are impressive in character. Self-contained and conveniently compact, Clarkston is a community where most destinations are within walking distance. In addition to area lakes, a number of County Parks add extensive recreational facilities. 


Modern development has not bypassed the region entirely. Shopping centers and professional services continue to spring up along the major thoroughfares, ensuring residents of every convenience. Both the city and the township provide good schools, well-kept homes, lively social activities, and prosperous small business endeavors.
