Town of Arbela

Taken from The History of Tuscola County, Biographical Sketches and Illustrations, H. R. Page Co., Chicago, 1883. Thanks to Bonnie Petee.



In the southwest corner of the county, with the county lines as its western and southern boundaries, with Millington on the east and Tuscola on the north, lies the town of Arbela.


It has a generally level surface, originally well wooded with maple, elm, beech, basswood, with bodies of pine of excellent quality. The largest body of pine was in the southwestern part of the town. The soil is generally a sandy loam, with clay loam in portions of the town.
