Genesee was founded about 1833 northwest of Flint in Genesee County. Later, it was located on a Pere Marquette branch line which left their main line just south of Mt. Morris and heading northeast through Genesee, Rogersville, Otisville and Otter Lake. The location is now on the Huckleberry Railroad within the Genesee park system.
