Lapeer is a city in Michigan and is the county seat of Lapeer County. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 8,841. Most of the city was incorporated from land that was formerly in Lapeer Township, though portions were also annexed from Mayfield Township and Elba Township. The city government is politically independent of all three townships. Lapeer is in southern Michigan, east of Flint, on the Flint River.
By an ordinance of the Congress of the United States passed on July 13, 1787, the area lying northwest of the Ohio River, though still occupied by the British, was organized as the Northwest Territory. Lapeer County was once part of the Northwest Territory. In January 1820, the county of Oakland was formed, which served the area now known as Lapeer, until the County of Lapeer was formed in 1837, when Michigan became a state. The first elections were for county officers, with 520 persons voting in 1837.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 7.38 square miles. Out of that 7.13 square miles is land and 0.25 square miles is water/ It is considered to be part of the Thumb of Michigan, which in turn is a sub-region of the Flint/Tri-Cities.
The name “Lapeer” is a corruption of the French la pierre, which means “the flint”.
