Oakland Township Communities at a Glance..…12

Oakland Township

Oakland Township is one of Michigan’s oldest townships. It was one of the original 25 townships in existence when Michigan organized as a territory back in 1827. Over time the boundaries of the Township changed many times and its original landmass grew smaller and smaller as other townships, cities and villages were carved out of its acreage. Today, Oakland Township borders are Dequindre Road on the east, Kern Road on the west, Romeo Road to the north and Dutton and Meade Roads to the south. Oakland is a charter township, which provides additional powers to streamline its administration and protect it from annexation by other municipalities.

Oakland is one of the wealthier communities in southeast Michigan. Its wooded and rolling terrain provides the perfect setting for private estates and residential developments featuring upscale homes on oversized lots. Oakland serves as a bedroom community to both the Metro Detroit and Metro Flint communities, which is why many business executives live in the area. Its agricultural and rural heritage is preserved through a small number of working farms and an expanding list of equestrian facilities. It is also noted for the many championship golf courses and country clubs that call Oakland Township home.

The unincorporated village of Goodison is located in the Township. Goodison is host to a number of cider mills, which is why it is a very popular autumn destination place. The Paint Creek Trail wanders through the Township as it winds its way up to the Village of Lake Orion and the sixteen acre Cranberry Lake Farm Historic District is a fun place for young and old to visit.
