With a population of 10,372 people, Farmington, Mich., is located about 20 miles northwest of Detroit.

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.
