Welcome to the City of Bad Axe!

While surveying the first state road through the Huron County wilderness in 1861, Rudolph Papst and George Willis Pack made camp here and found a much-used and badly damaged axe. At Pack's suggestion, Papst used the name "Bad Axe Camp" in the minutes of the survey and on a sign he placed along the main trail. By the time Papst returned from the Civil War, the name was on the map.

Bad Axe was incorporated as a village in 1885 with Septimus Irwin, its first settler, as president; and it was incorporated as Huron County's first city on March 15, 1905 with Joseph Fremont as the first mayor. Bad Axe celebrated its first 100 years as a city in 2005. It remains the county seat and is the largest community in Huron County as well as a commercial center for the upper Thumb area.
