Moving to Southfield
Southfield is a thriving Michigan city, a northern suburb of Detroit that's home to a diverse population.

The History of Southfield
Before 1700, the area that would eventually become Southfield was home to a Native American village. Although its tribe is unknown, communities of Ottawa, Huron, Potawatomi and many other tribes were known to live in the vicinity. In 1699, Antoine de la Mo the Cadillac traveled to France to propose the installation of a post at Detroit. Count Pontchartrain approved the plan, and Cadillac came back to Detroit in 1701 to establish the post known as Fort Pontchartrain.
In 1823, John Daniels became the first settler of Southfield Township. In the early years, two southern townships were considered one, called Bloomfield Township. On July 12, 1830, Ossewa Township was created as a separate entity. However, 17 days later, the citizens petitioned the state to change the name to Southfield, a name they chose because the new township was in the "south fields" of Bloomfield.
In the 1950s, a group of residents provided $500 of their own money to finance the filing fee for the incorporation of Southfield Township. Southfield became a city on April 28, 1958.
