Exploring Rochester Hills, Michigan

Rochester Hills MI resides in Oakland County, Michigan. Incorporated in 1984, Rochester Hills’s story reaches much further back in history. This city is a suburb of Detroit and is neighbored by Pontiac, Troy, and Rochester. 

The area is home to just over 76,000 residents, making it the 15th largest city in all of Michigan. Its suburban nature and the proximity to a big city like Detroit make it a great place to raise a family, while still being near the bustle of the city.

A Brief History of Rochester Hills

The area, like much of the state of Michigan, was settled by Native American tribes long before the arrival of the European Settlers. The Natives used the area as a hunting ground due to its rich natural resources. With the Treaty of Detroit, the Native Americans ceded the land to the settlers. 10 years after the Treaty of Detroit, in 1817, the first European settlers arrived in the area of today’s Rochester Hills MI.

Rochester Hills MI history

The city of Rochester Hills is separate from the city of Rochester, but the two share a tight historical connection. Originally both the cities belonged to the Avon Township, which was officially incorporated in 1835. The city of Rochester incorporated itself as a village inside the township by 1869, and since then has been looking for ways to establish itself as an independent city so as not to pay taxes to the township government. They finally achieved that by incorporating themselves as a city in 1966. Soon after, in 1967, as an attempt to fight off annexation claims of its lands, the Avon Township applied to be incorporated as a city itself. 

This was legally challenged by the neighboring cities that claimed parts of the territory, but in the end, their claims were refuted. Avon Township became Rochester Hills MI in 1984.
