11 Popular Asked Questions about Owosso and Ovid Elsie Homes

This question always comes up, how do I get to Elsie? Let me give you some quick details first. This rural town is located in Cinton County, the correct name of the township is actually called Village of Elsie with a zip code of 48831. It’s located North of Lansing, Perry, and Bath Michigan. To the East is Owosso and Durand. If you go West, you’ll see Westphalia, Fowler, Eureka and Maple Rapids and a few other small towns. What’s further than Elsie going North? If you keep driving on 127, you’ll come to Ashley Michigan and eventually Ithaca.

The closest big city would be St Johns and Owosso MI. I bet you want to know how far out of town? If I drove from Elsie to St Johns Michigan, it would be about 15 miles and take me 20 minutes. Now, if I drove from Elsie to Owosso, it would still be about the same like 20 minutes long. It’s only a longer ride by an extra mile (16 miles or so). In other words, it’s definitely a short drive to big chain stores like Kroger, Walmart, Applebee’s and Baker College.

Is there a school in the city of Elsie? How many students are enrolled?

Yes I know there are two elementary schools in this area. Leonard and EE Knight Elementary School located on Tyler Drive. I found out that EE Elementary is rated #5 best public elementary schools in Clinton County Michigan. This school is for kids in 1st grade to 5th grade. Hey, Niche.com gave it a review score of a B with really good academics and teachers.

I need to 3 find daycare services for my son or daughter. Where are the Early Childhood Education Centers?

I couldn’t find any locally owned or private preschools in town or on the main road. However, one option is to take that small drive to St Johns or Owosso because you would have a lot more options for childcare. For instance, I know of Rainbow Place and Meadowviewland Preschools in Saint Johns. You could also check out Facebook community groups to see if anyone does in-home day care for an affordable price.

Who else loves walking in the spring and summer? Elsie Park is just a 13 minute (0.7 miles) walk from this cute home. How awesome would it be to own a house near a park?
