Independence Township Michigan Local Property Management
Independence Township was primarily agricultural in the late 1800s, the numerous lakes were beginning to draw vacationers out of Detroit in the hot summer months. Several inns located throughout the township were the initial destinations for travelers, who would arrive by railroad and disembark at the township’s railroad depot, just south of Clarkston, By the early 1900s, travel to the township was made even easier with the convenience of the personal automobile. Small summer cottages began to be built within the township, and farms – especially those around the lakes, began to be sold and subdivided. This trend continued until the early 1930s, when the depression put a temporary end to further land developments.
