Highland Township, Michigan
was settled in 1835, and so named because it contained some of the
highest-elevation terrain among early-settled regions
in the state of Michigan.
Today, this community is an
interesting mixture of rural, suburban and lakefront residential lifestyles.
The downtown district known as Highland Station
is located at the intersection of Milford
and Livingston Roads. This historic area formerly included a depot, post office, grain
elevator, pickle works and wind-powered wood mill, in addition to the charming,
Victorian-era churches, homes and businesses which survive to this day.
