Lake Angelus is a city in Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. Lake Angelus consistently ranks as the city in Michigan with the 5th highest per capita income.


In the early 1900s, a small community formed around the lake, then called Three Mile Lake. During the 1920s, the lake was renamed Lake Angelus by Mrs. Sollace B. Collidge as the original name was meaningless. The community was under pressure from nearby government establishments to be annexed. In 1929, however, a special state act of legislation was passed, granting Lake Angelus incorporation as a village. Lake Angelus became a city of its own in 1984.


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.64 square miles (4.25 km2), of which 1.07 square miles (2.77 km2) is land and 0.57 square miles (1.48 km2) is water.
