Mio, Michigan
Mio is an unincorporated community in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is the county seat of Oscoda County and is situated along the boundary between Mentor Township on the east and Big Creek Township on the west. The name of the community is pronounced "MY-oh" (with a long "i" sound), not "ME-oh." The town was founded in 1881, and was originally called “Mioe”, in honor of the wife of town founder, Henry Deyarmond. Other founders are Colige Comins, Reirlo Fosdick, and John Randall.[4] A post office named Mioe opened May 3, 1882. The name changed to Mio on November 21, 1883.
