City Highlights Series: Farmington, MI

By Thumb Home Inspection

Farmington Michigan History:

Farmington was founded in 1824 by a man named Arthur Power. Power

was a Quaker man whom came from the state of New York. Farmington was

originally named Quakertown, as many of the settlers who came with Power were

also of the Quaker religion. Then in 1825 the first post office was established by

Dr. Eziekial Webb, a doctor and Farmington’s first postmaster. In 1826, Quakertown became Farmington, after Power’s hometown of Farmington, New York. Next came Farmington’s first school in 1828. It should also be noted that during the time of slavery, Farmington served as a station for the underground railroad.
