Overview of Farmington

With a population of 10,372 people, Farmington, Mich., is located about 20 miles northwest of Detroit. This desirable suburb calls itself one of the most attractive areas in the United States, boasting a high quality of life, numerous amenities and beautiful architecture. Noted for its historic downtown and quaint Victorian homes, Farmington offers residents a chance to live in the midst of the past and present. Known as a family-friendly city, Farmington is home to great educational and recreational opportunities.

Originally settled by a family of Quakers in 1824, Farmington has demonstrated positive values and significant growth throughout its history. During the Civil War era, Farmington served as a station on the Underground Railroad. It was finally incorporated as a township in 1867. Prior to World War II, Farmington was viewed as a small agricultural town. It wasn't until the 1950s that the area became seen as suburban. People moved to the area and increased Farmington's economy, bringing with them a construction and housing boom.
