Exploring Southfield, Michigan
Southfield MI is a city in Oakland County, with a population of just over 70 thousand people. Located just 15 miles to the northwest of Detroit, Southfield is home to the Southfield Town Center complex, which includes the state’s second-tallest building outside Detroit.
A Brief History of Southfield, MI
In 1817 the area that is now Southfield MI was surveyed and the first settlers came from nearby Birmingham and Royal Oak, Michigan, as well as New York and Vermont. The township took its name from its location in the “south fields” of Bloomfield Township.
Southfield was officially incorporated in 1958, to protect it from annexation attempts by Detroit. City Hall was built in 1964 as part of the new Civic Center complex. The Civic Center was later expanded to include a sports arena, golf course, and the Southfield Pavilion. Over the next several decades, the center was expanded and redesigned, featuring state-of-the-art facilities. Outside the Civic Center complex, Southfield has municipal parks and recreation facilities, largely developed in the 1970s, including Beech Woods Recreation Center and John Grace Community Center.
