Lake Orion Michigan Local Property Management
Lake Orion, once called Lake Canandaigua, is for the most part “man made.” Prior to 1936, the lake was small, with the Paint Creek being both an inlet and an outlet. To provide adequate fl ow for the use of waterpowered mills, a dam was constructed. Lake Orion’s popularity as a resort was strengthened by the construction of the inter-urban at the turn of the century.
This passenger rail system linked the City of Detroit and a surprising number of small suburban
towns, including the cities of Northville, Luna Pier, Farmington and Oxford. The resort nature of the area gave rise to the development of dense cottage subdivisions in Lake Orion and the northeast portion of the Township. This reinforced the agricultural base of the Township, as farmers found the resort industry created a sound market for their goods.
As of the census of 2000, there were 33,463 people, 12,246 households, and 8,976 families residing in the township. The population density was 1,003.3 per square mile (387.4/km²). There were 12,837 housing units at an average density of 384.9 per square mile (148.6/km²). The racial makeup of the township was 95.42% White, 1.26% African American, 0.27% Native American, 1.18% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.61% from other races, and 1.23% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.56% of the population.
