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!
