First established all the way back in 1837, Ira Township, MI has enjoyed a steady growth over the course of the last two centuries. Its population now sits at around 7,000. The community is expected to continue to grow in the coming years as more and more people spread out across the 20 square miles in the area and buy up Ira Township real estate.
Ira Township is located next to New Baltimore and borders several other townships, including Casco, Clay, and Cottrellville. It also includes two smaller towns within the township that are called Anchorville and Fair Haven. Each of these towns has started to attract people, which means you can find new homes for sale in Fair Haven, MI as well as Anchorville. Anchorville actually obtained its name back in the 1850s and 1860s when ships started to anchor down and take cover in the area during storms taking place on Lake Erie and Lake Huron.
One of the reasons people love Ira Township, Fair Haven, and Anchorville so much is because of Anchor Bay, which sits at the middle of all three. It’s a part of Lake St. Clair, a lake that connects Lake Erie and Lake Huron. Anchor Bay has made local real estate appealing because of the recreational activities it provides. People enjoy using the bay to go boating, swimming, fishing, and jet skiing. The lake is also filled with all kinds of wildlife, including ducks, geese, swans, and more. Additionally, the bay freezes up during the winter and allows people to go ice fishing, ice skating, and even snowmobiling on it.
Outside of the beautiful water in Ira Township, MI, there are lots of farmlands and open country, too. There are two school districts, Anchor Bat and Algonac, for those who move into the area, and many great restaurants and bars.
