Trip Planner USA  /  Michigan  /  Charlevoix County  /  East Jordan
East Jordan is a city in Charlevoix County, in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 2,351 at the 2010 census.The city is at the end of the south arm of Lake Charlevoix, at the mouth of the Jordan River. M-66 connects with US 31 at Charlevoix about 12mi to the northwest and with US 131 at Mancelona, 18mi to the south. M-32 has its western terminus in the city and connects with US 131 about 16mi to the east and with I-75 at Gaylord about 29mi to the east.HistoryEast Jordan was founded sometime in the 1870s when a logging mill was built along the Jordan River near the town. There were originally two places; East Jordan itself began with a store built by William F. Empey, a Canadian immigrant, in 1874. There was also a place called South Arm. The two locales merged in 1878. It was incorporated as a village in 1887 and as a city in 1911.The town grew quickly, and by 1890, it boasted a large ironworks (the East Jordan Iron Works still operates today), a feed mill, and a population of nearly 1000. By the turn of the century, the city was being serviced by two railroads. With these two railroad connections, East Jordan quickly grew into a major manufacturing center. To this day, four industrial corporations still operate within the town.
