Two Indian Trails crossed at this point: the Orchard Lake Trail running north and south, and the Shiawassee Trail running east and west. In 1824, a Quaker settlement began to develop around this point. In the 1850's, the settlement expanded southward towards Farmington Road and Grand River Avenue intersection to what is now the Farmington Central Business District. The community incorporated into a village in 1867, and adopted a City Charter in 1926.
The First Baptist Church, located on this site, was organized in 1826. The original structure was built in 1861, and is still in use as a church.
