Welcome to the Village of Pinckney Website!
Pinckney is located in Putnam Township in southern Livingston County. The area was first settled in 1827 by William Kirkland who moved from New York with his family, including wife Caroline who gained fame (and a bit of notoriety) with her writings about the area. With his brother-in-law, James Stansbury, Kirkland formed the William Kirkland Company, which organized the village. Kirkland named the community after his brother, Charles Pinckney Kirkland, a New York attorney. The village was platted in 1837 and incorporated as a village in 1883.
Temporary Village Hall closure
Village Hall will be closed on Wednesday, March 7 and, potentially, Thursday, March 8, for building security upgrades. We will update this post accordingly. The Police department is still 24/7. If the officer is not in the office (car is usually parked on West Livingston) you can reach them by calling dispatch at 517-546-9111. Additionally, the Department of Public Works will be working their regular hours and can be reached at 734 878 -0666. Thank you for your patience while we make some security updates to the building.
