Washtenaw County and Northfield Township Historical Society Receive Grant

. September 30, 2019.

The Washtenaw County Historic District received a $15,000 grant to complete the ongoing Reconnaissance Level Survey of Northfield Township, which aims to document the historical resources in Northfield Township and evaluate its architectural and historical significance, by September 2020. “Northfield Township has a rich agricultural and social history,” said Washtenaw County Commissioner Sue Shink. “Many of our architecturally significant buildings are homes and farms where the people of Northfield Township have lived and worked for almost 200 years. They continue to be important to our residents and many are still used for their original purposes. This grant will help us to better understand their history, document their importance, and foster an even stronger culture of preservation.” Once the survey is completed, a report will be created to help the county recognize its historic buildings.
