The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. Traverse City is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is the largest in the 21-county Northern Michigan region. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 14,532. It is the county seat of Grand Traverse County6, although a small portion lies in Leelanau County. Despite its modest population, Traverse City functions as the major commercial nexus for a seven-county area totaling over 7,000 square kilometers and, along with cross-peninsula counterpart Alpena, is one of Northern Lower Michigan's two anchor cities.
Traverse City is named after the Grand Traverse Bay, which the city heads. The bay got its name from 18th century French voyagers who made le grande traverse or the long crossing across the mouth of the bay. In 1847, Captain Boardman of Naperville, Illinois, purchased the land at the mouth of the Boardman River at the head of the west arm of the bay. During that year the captain, his son, and their employees built a dwelling and sawmill near the mouth of the river. In 1851 the Boardmans sold the sawmill to Hannah, Lay & Co, who improved the mill greatly. The increased investment in the mill attracted additional settlers to the new community.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 22.5 square kilometers. 21.8 square kilometers of it is land and 0.8 square kilometers of it is water. In the city the population was spread out with 20.3 percent under the age of 18, 10.8 percent from 18 to 24, 29.6 percent from 25 to 44, 24.1 percent from 45 to 64, and 15.2 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 38 years. For every 100 females there were 90.5 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 87.2 males. Traverse City also has a public transportation system, BATA, the Bay Area Transportation Authority which serves most of the Grand Traverse region with dial-a-ride services and a bus service, called the Cherriot, serves Traverse City and the urbanized areas of Garfeild Township.
Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Traverse enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
