Statistics and Facts of Northfield Michigan

History
Northfield Township was established in 1832, when the Territorial Legislature held a meeting in Detroit, and passed the resolution which brought it into existence. The name, popularly believed to refer to the fact that the township is in the northern part of the county, also points back to the New England heritage of many of its first settlers, whose practice it was to bring part of their homeland with them by naming new places after the ones they had left. Northfield Township quite possibly could be named after the New England site - - Northfield Township, Massachusetts. However, that the town is in the "northern fields" of the county must have made the name seem quite appropriate.
