Town of Frankfort centennial
(1890-1990)

Early history,   pp. 1-4


Page 3

The Town of Frankfort is unique as to location as compared
to other townships, sinceitis in sort ofahub located between the
various villages around. This may be one reason why Frankfort
was settled several years later than the other townships. The
distance to the outlying villages has posed a problem for many
years, especially during the horse and buggy days. When the
people had to haul their forest products and farm produce to
town and supplies back home, it was an all day trip. The early
families who wanted to send their children to high school and
could not afford to board them in town often kept them home
from school.
Very few people realize the disadvantage of driving extra
miles to town to trade for these many years. Another problem
for the township is the various government services. We now
belong to four high school districts, five mail routes, four fire
department districts, five telephone exchanges plus other vari-
ous services. This is why some of the early activities of the
township were carried on in the communities of Cherokee,
March Rapids, Fenwood, Milan and Corinth because no village
or city bordered our township.
