Imlay Township is located in the heart of Michigan, which is why we are referred to as the gateway to the thumb.
With a population of a little more than 3,000, we are a small community that prides itself in its diversity.

Many large tracts were purchased, among them being one which included a considerable portion of the Townships of Attica and Imlay.
