Swartz Creek is a small city with a suburban feel outside Flint, MI. It originally was supposed to be a “New Flint,” trying to incorporate the metropolitan area into its nearby counterpart. While the area was settled in 1836 as the Miller Settlement, Swartz Creek did not get its name until 1877 when it was platted. The city is named after the Swartz Creek, a tributary of the Flint River, which runs through the area. It was incorporated as a city in December of 1959 and included parts of Gaines, Clayton, and Flint Townships.
