Azalia, also known as Azalea, is an unincorporated community in Milan Township, Monroe County in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is located at exit 22 off U.S. Highway 23, about five miles south of the city of Milan and about four miles north of Dundee.
Azalia is situated between sections 24 and 25 on the north branch of the Macon Creek at 42°01'08" north latitude and 83°39'75" west longitude. The ZIP code is 48110 and the FIPS place code is 04680.
The community was first known as East Milan, or Reeves Station where a family named Reeves established the Star Bending Company. A post office opened in 1866, largely through the efforts of Daniel T. Hazen, to avoid having to travel to West Milan (now Cone) to pick up mail. Steven Frink was the first postmaster, followed by Hazen in 1867, Joseph Meadows in 1872, John M. Lewis in 1877, and A.C. Reynolds in 1884. On September 1, 1887, the postmaster-general issued orders changing the name of the post office from "East Milan" to "Azalia", which was the name of the railroad station and also named Meadows as postmaster again.
The "Toledo, Ann Arbor and Grand Trunk Railway" (later the "Toledo, Ann Arbor and North Michigan Railway" and now the Ann Arbor Railroad, opened on June 8, 1878, with a station named "Azalia".
A Methodist Episcopal Church began holding classes in the early 1850s, building a church in 1870, which continues to the present as the Azalia United Methodist Church.
