Statistics and Facts of Utica Michigan
The city now known as Utica was platted by Joseph Stead in 1829, who preferred to call it "Harlow." Others referred to the city as "Hog Hollow" or "McDougalville," until a few years later it was finally named Utica by settlers from New York, in honor of the city of the same name in that state. This was common of settlers in this region, and is reflected in the names of nearby cities such as Rochester and Troy that are also named for New York cities.
Utica boasts a small historic district centered around Cass Avenue, but few of the buildings predate 1906, due to destructive fires in 1905 and 1906.
