Thurston Neighborhood


The area north of Plymouth and east of Nixon is a well-manicured mixture of subdivisions, condominiums, townhouses, and apartment complexes. Business professionals, U-M faculty and staff, children, and retirees all mix in this area. The single-family subdivisions west of Green were first known as Ford Motor Company neighborhoods, for their high commuter population.

The neighborhoods are fairly stable, with an extremely high rate of home ownership. Many children live within walking distance of school, and shopping at Traver Village and Plymouth Road Mall is just a stone’s throw away.


The Northbury / Chapel Hill townhouse condos, east of Green, have a fairly high turnover, as U-M graduate students, staff, and foreign visitors come and go. The unincorporated hamlet of Dixboro, along Plymouth Rd. at the western edge of Superior Township, has a small core of historic homes.

The Thurston area continues deep into Superior Township, where exclusive subdivisions are mixed in with old and new country homes on huge lots with views of the remaining farms. Some homes in the Glennborough sub off Gale cost more than $1 million. Thurston also serves some students bused from the Arrowwood Cooperative (see Northside, above). All grads go on to Clague Middle School and Huron High.
