Welcome to the City of Memphis,  first settled in the 1830's!  Memphis is a city with a rich past and an exciting future.  Straddling the border of Macomb and St. Clair counties, Memphis is located along state highway M-19, midway between Metro Detroit and the gorgeous Thumb of Michigan.  This location offers an excellent balance of proximity to the amenities and employment opportunities of a big city, yet the unique small-town atmosphere in which to raise a family.  

Memphis provides its residents and visitors a quality school system, a variety of local businesses offering both goods and services, as well as a number of parks to relax and play.  Whether you are passing through or planting roots, Memphis is an incredible community!  Check it out!


More information can be found here or call the City Offices Monday thru Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. @ 810-392-2385
