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.
