Vassar is a small city located in Tuscola County in Michigan that was founded in 1849 by four men who were searching for land where they could build a dam and start a city. The name of the city comes from Matthew Vassar, the uncle of one of the founders, who later established the Vassar College. The main industry in Vassar is lumber.
