Wixom is a small city in southeast Michigan a little more than half an hour's drive from Detroit. Though there was an earlier permanent settler by the name of Alonzo Sibley, the town was named after the Wixom family who granted the right to the railroad to pass through their property. Sibley’s and Wixom's partnership would later make the town an important hub of grain, produce and lumber during the Industrial Revolution.
Today, Wixom is an outpost for several manufacturing companies so you'll find urban conveniences in and around the city, but still enjoy that green and leafy small town atmosphere. Surrounded by Lakes Huron and Erie, and all the cosmopolitan cities and charming towns on their shores, Wixom is in a prime spot to whet your travel appetite.
