Welcome to Michigan’s Great Britton! We are a small farming community with friendly faces. We are always willing to lend a helping hand when needed and meet a new friend. We are proud to say that many of the current residents in our village are direct descendents of its founders.
Permits are required for vendors or solicitors to go door-to-door within the Village. They can be obtained from the Clerk's Office. If someone comes to your door, ask to see their permit and ID. They should have it with them.
