Mount Pleasant is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan and the county seat of Isabella County and located in Central Michigan. The population was 26,016 at the 2010 census.Part of the city (with a population of 8,741) is on the Isabella Indian Reservation, site of the Soaring Eagle Casino. The city is also home to the main campuses of Central Michigan University and Mid Michigan Community College.HistoryWhite settlers first arrived in what is now Mount Pleasant after the Graduation Act of 1854, allowing white settlers to purchase land from the government at discount rates. The Treaty of 1855 relocated the Native American Ojibwa (Saginaw Chippewa Tribe) from Saginaw, Swan Creek, and Black River to land in Isabella County (Isabella Indian Reservation). Many non-natives soon moved to Mount Pleasant predicting prosperous relations with the natives. The Homestead Act of 1862 brought many new settlers to Mount Pleasant to live on the free land that the government allowed them.In 1875, a devastating fire started at the Fancher Building on the north corner of Broadway Street and Main Street. It eventually moved east down Broadway, destroying several buildings. Seven years later another fire would damage buildings on the south side of Broadway.
