History & History Related Items

Brownstown history:

Brownstown was one of the original nine townships in Wayne County before Michigan was even a state. Brownstown was established ten years before Michigan was admitted to the Union. The original township had approximately 43 square miles, but today its size is smaller - around 23 square miles.

The naming of Brownstown is not certain. It is thought that it was named for Adam Brown, an eight year old who was captured by Wyandot Indians in 1764. He was kidnapped in Virginia. He grew up among the tribe and married an Indian woman.

When Brownstown Township was organized in 1827, Moses Roberts was the first supervisor, which is like a Mayor of a city. The supervisor is also a voting member of the Board of Trustees.
