CHEERS - To historic Northville. A state board has nominated parts of the village of Northville to the state and national registers of historic places. This should be welcome news for the village, which has a rich history that deserves recognition. The Northville historic district would include properties on Main Street, Division Street and Bridge Street, among others. It's the residential and commercial core of the village, dating from 1819 to 1933. This area began to grow in the 1830s as a result of the logging industry. The village grew rapidly after the completion of the railroad in 1875. The historic designations not only will draw attention to village history, but likely strengthen the village's tourism industry.
