Also see . . . Greenbush Township, Alcona County, Michigan. In 1862, Morris & McDougal, of New York state, bought government pine timber land and set up lumber operations. The area became known as "McDougal's Landing". Later, William Conklin built a sawmill here, and in about 1867, at the suggestion of an employee from Greenbush, New York, the name was changed. A post office named "Greenbush" opened on May 16, 1870, with James Burton as postmaster. The name of the office was changed to "Perfection" on June 6, 1917, and changed back to Greenbush on January 8, 1921. (Submitted on November 29, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
