Branch County is situated in beautiful southern Michigan, midway between Chicago and Detroit, on the Old Sauk Trail, now known as U.S. 12 Heritage Route. In 1829, the county was named after John Branch, then Secretary of the Navy, under President Andrew Jackson. The county seat is Coldwater, presently the county’s largest city.
