Southgate, Michigan is a community known for its diversity, events, activities and its long history. First incorporated as a city in 1958, the history of what is known today as Southgate dates back over 135 years. Encompassing an area of roughly 6.8 square miles, Southgate’s history of occupation dates back long before to a time when the first Native American tribes hunted, fished and raised their families throughout the region. By the 1670’s the first European trappers and traders had made their way to the area as well and by the 1800’s, settlers were moving here in search of farm land and a place to raise their own families.
Today, Southgate is home to popular recreational areas such as the Splash Park/Downriver YMCA which was named one of the best swimming pools in Greater Detroit as well as golf courses, parks and play fields, an ice rink in addition to a great shopping area and plenty of annual festivals and events to keep anyone busy.
