Hillsdale is a pretty town located on Highway 34 in south central Michigan, bordering Indiana and Ohio. Named for the "hills and dales" of the surrounding countryside, this town is home to approximately 9,000 residents and serves as the county seat for Hillsdale County. The city of Hillsdale is also home to Hillsdale College, which was the first coeducational parochial college in the state, established in 1844. The downtown area features a picturesque "town square" with a stately Victorian-era courthouse at its' center. This one-time railroad boomtown has dozens of beautiful Victorian homes that stand along lovely tree-lined streets that are especially appealing in summer and fall. The overall area is peaceful and quiet, rural in nature, with 350 lakes and ponds interspersed among the wooded areas. Baw Beese Lake provides a public beach for swimming, fishing, boating and other water sports, along with 4.5 miles of trails for hiking and biking. Altogether the city of Hillsdale has over 98 acres of parkland, including tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts and baseball diamonds. A farmer's market is held every Saturday at the local fairgrounds and features fresh fruits and vegetables and a flea market, and several antique stores can be found in area. For local culture, Hillsdale College's "Sage Center for the Arts" features an art exhibit room, performance hall and a highly regarded concert series.

Hillsdale Weather & Climate

The southeast lower section of Michigan has four seasons and due to its location near Lake Huron and Lake Ontario, it does experience lake effect, such as increased cloudiness during late fall and early winter. Summer precipitation comes in the form of showers and thunderstorms, but prolonged periods of humidity are rare. The Great Lakes also act as a giant "heat sink," which helps moderate the temperatures of the surrounding land, cooling summers and warming winters. It is also a natural humidifier, and this causes an increase in the moisture content in the air, creating heavier snowfalls in the winter. Average annual snowfall is 36 inches, but varies greatly from year to year. Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, but sees less of this activity than other parts of the country.
