It was created on March 28, 1835 and fully organized on April 4, 1836. It was named after Genesee County, New York by settlers from New York. Many local place names in the county are also from New York and Pennsylvania, reflecting the pattern of settlement. A major attraction for visitors is Crossroads Village, a living history village north of Flint. Genesee County has the largest public park system in the State of Michigan.

The Genesee County Health Department is nationally recognized for its innovative approaches to improving the public's health. The GCHD hosts a nationally known public health conference every April. ;Genesee County table/maps;1835;1838;1843;1855
