Northville

Plymouth Voice regularly reports on all the family-center events and business happenings within the City of Northville, Michigan. Straddling Oakland and Wayne counties, the small 150-year old city still has an idyllic small town flavor of eclectic styles, leaning toward Victorian architecture around the downtown area where many homes are of the Queen Anne style. Northville’s Victorian heritage is celebrated every September with a Victorian Festival, recently renamed the “Heritage Festival”.

Located midway between Detroit and Ann Arbor, Northville has a population of 6,000 in an area of two square miles. Northville Downs race track  which opened in 1944 as the first nighttime harness racing track in Michigan, was built on the site of the former Wayne County Fair.

The former Plymouth “Super-Township,” which included all of Canton, Plymouth, and Northville Township, was divided into Plymouth Township and Northville Township at the turn of the century. The Charter Township of Northville with a population of 28,497 within its 16-acres adjoins the city of Northville. The small city within a few miles of Plymouth is one of the most desirable places to live in the country. Northville is adjacent to the northern part of the township but is administratively autonomous. Northville and Northville Township are two communities that are closely linked to Plymouth, logistically and demographically.
