Ortonville

ortonville_MI

The Village of Ortonville is only one square mile in size, but it can be said it is the downtown to Brandon Township. The Brandon Library, a newly designed, state of the art library, is housed in Ortonville, as well as three park areas, two churches, a historical museum, an authentic one room schoolhouse, a senior citizen center, little league fields and a skate park. Ortonville students attend Brandon Public Schools. Two of the elementary schools, the Intermediate School and the Community Education’s Sherman Lifelong Learning Center are all located in Ortonville. Brandon Middle School and Brandon High School, awarded the Blue Ribbon Exemplary School Award for Excellence, are both short walks from downtown.
