Burton is located on the Detroit River at the confluence of three major waterways: the Saginaw River, the Lower Rouge River and Lake Michigan, and occupies an area of about 4.2 square kilometers. The large population and economic stability make Burton a popular destination for tourists and residents alike, as well as residents of other Michigan cities and communities. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture census data, Burton had 1.3 million square feet of land, including about 2 million acres and about 1 million water, making it America's second-largest land area after Detroit.
Originally founded in 1856 as a township, the area was named after John Burton, a prominent farmer. Burton was converted into a township in 1855, and in 1972 it was recognised as a town by its 1349 inhabitants.
Burton gained its prominent citizens when John C. Wolverton returned to the county in 1856 and bought land in the township after serving with Col. William M. Fenton in his "Fenton Light Guard." Three years later, John Wright, a former member of the Flint Township Board of Supervisors, was elected Flint highway commissioner. In 1858, after a dispute between the city and the city of Flint over the use of public land, the Genesee County Board of Directors decided to divide Flint Township into two, with the founding of Burton Township.
Burton graduated from UNC with a bachelor's degree in labor relations in 1987 and played as a linebacker for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL) for four seasons after graduating. After his NFL career, Burton returned to North Carolina and spent two years as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan and one year at Michigan State University.
Burton developed some of the best defensive linemen in school history, helping Michigan State to a 67-57 overall record, including a 10-4 mark in the Big Ten Conference and a 12-3 record in conference play, while developing high-profile players like J.J. Wilcox, Dontre Wilson and Nick Bosa into the top 10 players in college football history. Since Burton's arrival in 2012, Michigan State has seen its total offensive surge from 20.5 points per game in its first two seasons (2011-12) to an all-Big Ten best 42.2 in 2014, which also ranks eighth - the most in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision.
