Overview

Located only a short distance from the cacophony and activity of Detroit's metro area, Northville has maintained its unique small-town charm and identity across the passing decades. Even before the town's official incorporation in 1955, Northville's citizens worked tirelessly to preserve their picturesque setting in rural western Wayne County, to maintain the elegant Victorian architecture in their homes and businesses, and to carve out a prosperous community, marked by excellent schools and a high quality of life. Northville, Michigan brings to life, through word and image, the different events and eras that shaped this small town's history and recalls the area's notable personalities and influences, such as auto industry legend Henry Ford, aviation pioneer Eddie Stinson, and Wayne County Road Commissioner Edward Hines, and their impact on the general character of the community. Most importantly, this volume highlights the everyday person's existence in the Northville of yesteryear, providing today's readers a rare opportunity to glimpse into the lives and worlds of their ancestors and to experience firsthand how they worked, how they worshiped, and how they played.
