History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Originally part of Spring Arbor Township, Sandstone was established in 1837 by act of the State Legislature. It incorporated as a charter township in 2000 after rapid commercial and industrial development and the need for expanded municipal powers. One major development includes Michigan Automotive Compressors, Inc. (MACI), which produces parts for the automotive industry and employs several hundred members of the community.

Sandstone Station is a former railroad stop along the current Norfolk Southern Railway/Amtrak line between Jackson and Albion. The station building is located at the intersection of Sandstone Road and Michigan Avenue (formerly U.S. Highway 12).
