     A Bit of history about McBain.....McBain began as a settlement around a sawmill in Riverside Township, founded by Gillis McBain and his brother John McBain in 1887. A station on the Toledo, Ann Arbor and North Michigan Railway named "Owens" opened on August 27, 1888 and a post office with the same name opened on September 10, 1888. Both were renamed McBain on September 17, 1889. McBain incorporated as a village in 1893 and as a city in 1907.
