About Chelsea

Chelsea is a small town in southeast Michigan full of history, a hub of modern cultural activities that embraces its strong heritage. Chelsea is an urban area, with highway M-52 running directly through the middle, providing easy access for quick travel or long road trips.

Chelsea was an agricultural town when it was founded. The area was wooded and easy to farm, proven by Chelsea shipping the most wool and becoming the county’s top produce market. Even though time moved on, the people of Chelsea did not. This area is known for its large number of generational families, whose ancestors were greatly involved in the shaping of the town they know and love.

The industrialization of Chelsea did not eliminate all of its natural beauty. In fact, the nearby Waterloo Recreation Area provides miles of trails and plenty of outdoor activities for all seasons, including hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, golfing and picnicking. The arts also thrive in the area, which boasts the Chelsea Center for the Arts and The Purple Rose Theater. Education and healthcare abound in the area, with a dedicated school district staff and a large community hospital complete with a health and wellness center, head pain program, ER services and women’s health center.

The downtown district of Chelsea is on the National Register of Historic Places and offers countless shopping and dining experiences to enjoy. There are several residential communities and healthcare options available for seniors.

Chelsea has a wide variety of housing, but among the most unique and inspiring are its Victorian neighborhoods. Looking for homes for sale in Chelsea? Our Chelsea real estate office is knowledgeable about the area and ready to help.
