About 45 miles north of downtown Detroit, Highland Charter Township, Michigan is a suburb in Oakland County. Originally traversed by Native American hunters who blazed trails throughout the area, what would later become Highland Township was mostly swamp and thick forest before pioneer farmers settled the land in the years after the War of 1812. Highland gained official township status in 1835, just two years before Michigan statehood. The township takes its name from the fact that early settlers believed the area to be the highest point in Michigan at the time. In fact, Mt. Arvon in the northern part of the state at nearly 2,000 feet is the high point. The Highland Township Historical Society claims that Massachusetts born Naham Curtis was the first farmer to purchase land in Highland. Records indicate he began fencing and “tilling his land” at some point in the 1830’s. Curtis also converted to Mormonism at about the same time and attended meetings in nearby Pontiac with important figures in Mormon history including the Prophet Joseph Smith. Because of this conversion, Curtis did not stay long in Highland but eventually ended up at the Mormon settlement in Nauvoo, Illinois where he was a prominent figure in the early Mormon movement. The most prominent geographic feature of Highland Township are the 22 lakes within its borders. Duck Lake and White Lake in the northeastern quadrant of the township are the largest. Today, Highland Charter Township is an affluent suburb which receives an overall grade of A- from the real estate website Niche. The median household income is more than $70,000 a year.
A Highland Township tutor will keep you caught up on your most demanding academic subjects so you can take time away from the books to enjoy the many things to do in the greater Detroit area. On the southeastern edge of the township, Highland Recreation Area offers 5,900 acres of wilderness for a variety of camping and recreational opportunities. Highland features forest, marshes and lakes with several miles of trails for hiking, equestrian, mountain bikers and snow skiers. Day use areas include picnic sites, volleyball courts and horseshoe pits. Fishing and boating are also popular activities on the six larger lakes. Mt. Kanzer, at over 1,100 feet, is the area’s highest point.
Offering more than 4,400 acres of wooded territory, Kensington Metropark is just south of Highland Township in Milford. Ample recreational opportunities at the park include hiking, windsurfing, boating and bicycling. Cross-country skiing, tobogganing and sledding are available in the winter months. The highlight of the metropark is 1,200-acre Kent Lake which features boating, fishing, swimming and the Splash ‘n’ Blast waterpark. In the summer and fall, the Queen II takes visitors for tours of the lake. The metropark is also home to an 18-hole golf course, 27-hole disc golf course, a nature center and farm center.
Highland Township benefits from its proximity to the exciting attractions in the Metropolitan Detroit region. Southeast of Highland the Detroit Zoo occupies 125 acres with more than 2,000 animals from 245 different species. The zoo was the first in the nation to feature barless exhibits. Opened in 1928, the zoo has steadily grown over the years and today has over 1.5 million visitors each year. The zoo is especially known for its “Arctic Ring of Life” exhibit which is home to two polar bears, gray seals, harbor seals and arctic foxes. Other exhibits include the “Australian Outback Adventure,” “Giraffe Encounter” and the Holden Reptile Conservation Center.
