Located just West of Downtown Traverse City, Slabtown is a thriving Northern Michigan community offering numerous amenities for its residents. It was originally founded in the 1800s by our area’s sawmill workers who used scraps from the mill, known as “slabs” to build their homes in this area.

With close, walkable proximity to public beaches, hiking trails, parks, and Munson Medical Center, the Slabtown Neighborhoods are prized not only for their location but also for their larger lot sizes. Existing outside of downtown also allows for easier commutes outside of the busy downtown traffic patterns. Slabtown’s Wayne Hill provides gorgeous and expansive views of the town and of West Grand Traverse Bay.
