Farmington & Farmington Hills Neighborhoods
Farmington and Farmington Hills neighborhoods trace their native ancestors to the Pottawatomie Indians. In 1820, this land was taken over by the U.S. government and was sold to settlers for $1.25 per acre. Arthur Power, a Quaker from Farmington, New York, and a small company of men, had the means to take advantage of this opportunity.
On February 1, 1824, Power set out from New York with two of his older sons, John and Jarred, and two hired men, David Smith and Daniel Rush, to purchase the land between Eleven Mile Road and Power to Alameda Road. Power and his two sons, together with friends and hired laborers, arrived in the area on March 8, 1824, ready to settle down. They began by building a small log cabin and clearing land to plant wheat and corn. Over time, more and more settlers arrived, and the agriculture and business in the area continued to expand. Interestingly, David Smith, one of the hired men, completed his year's service with Mr. Power, for which he received one hundred and thirty six dollars for efforts.
After the Civil War, the people living in a square mile of territory around what is now Grand River and Farmington Road, voted to have that area become a village. In 1867, the area now known as the Historic District, became incorporated as the village of Farmington, and in 1926 this area became an official city. Over time adjoining lands were annexed, and various villages were formed. In 1972 the original village of Farmington and other villages in the area combined to form the City of Farmington Hills.
