The Village of Pinckney was first platted in 1837 and early development of the Village was tied to the success of a flour mill.  Today, the Village serves as a bustling reminder of how modern and historic can combine.  Pinckney is located in southern Livingston County along M-36, a major east-west corridor through the county.  The location offers its residents convenient access to the major metropolitan centers of Lansing, Flint, Detroit and Ann Arbor via the major expressways of I-96, US-23 and I-94.   Downtown is a walkable, mixed-use area with several business blocks surrounded by a town square.  The Village and its Downtown Development Authority support the development and redevelopment of it’s downtown offering utilities, reconstructed streets, adjacent municipal parking lot and quaint, hometown atmosphere.  Pinckney, deemed the “Gateway to Play”, boasts miles of non-motorized trails, the 11,000-acre Pinckney State Recreation Area (complete with camping), nine inland lakes and year-round attractions for outdoor enthusiasts providing opportunity for a mixture of nature and development in the area.
