Living in Rochester Hills, Michigan
Avon Township, which is now Rochester and Rochester Hills was one of the first areas settled in the county. Once a quaint farm community, Rochester Hills was privately owned for the first 33 years of existence in the late 1800s. Between 1910 and 1920, the population of Rochester Hills grew into a bustling city as workers from Detroit moved to the area for larger homes and yards. This caused the rapid addition of 35 subdivisions between 1915 and 1930.
After being hit by the Great Depression, Rochester Hills started to prosper again in the 1940s. Since then, the community has grown into an affluent suburb with superb public amenities all around. Today, rentals in Rochester Hills are near museums, an art center, symphony and public library.
