Statistics and Facts of Walled Lake Michigan

Origins of the Name
The town's name is said to have been given by the first settler, Walter Hewitt, in 1825. Upon his arrival, he noticed what appeared to be a stone wall along the lake's western bank, possibly contructed by earlier Potawatomi Indian tribes.

Underground Railroad
Resting spots along the Underground Railroad, where runaway slaves could sleep and eat, were called "depots". One of these was the Foster Farmhouse in Walled Lake, which served as a refuge for those making their way to freedom in Canada.
