North Star Township
North Star Township is a rural, agricultural area located in Michigan’s central, southeastern region. As of the census of 2020, there were 895 people residing in the township.
It began in 1857 with the organization of what was then known as Douglas, a station on the Ann Arbor Railroad. It was renamed “North Star” in 1884. Our little town has remained active throughout the years, maintaining a post office.
