Onsted is in Lenawee County, and in the Southeast Region (part of the Ann Arbor, Michigan metropolitan area). Onsted is part of the Ann Arbor, Michigan metro area. This community is located off of Onsted Hwy northwest of Adrian.
Onsted was organized in 1884 by William Onsted, named after his father. It became a town as a result of the Michigan & Ohio Railroad coming through the area. It was later incorporated as a village in 1907.
Today, Onsted is a small agricultural town that has survived functioning as a bedroom community to the greater Adrian and Jackson areas. The town is also supported by the increasing population in what is known as the Irish Hills area, a picturesque, hilly region covered by many small lakes.
