Highland Charter Township is a charter township of west Oakland County in Michigan. The population was 19,202 at the 2010 census. Highland is a suburb of Detroit.
Highland Township was founded by pioneer families in 1835. A major factor in the development of Highland was the railroad, which allowed lumber to be transported cheaply, and allowed pickles from the township’s early factories to be exported easily. In 2003, in an effort to retain its rural character, as well as preserve its extensive equestrian heritage, Highland declared itself an “equestrian community” and began active support and encouragement of the equestrian presence and related development in the township. In 2006, thanks in large part to the efforts of the Highland Equestrian Conservancy, Highland Township received official recognition by the state government as Michigan’s first designated equestrian community.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 35.8 square miles. Out of that, 33.6 square miles is land and 2.2 square miles, or 6.14%, is water. Nearly 1/4 of the land in Highland Township is owned by the State of Michigan as part of Highland Recreation Area.
As of the census of 2000, there were 19,169 people, 6,786 households, and 5,374 families residing in the township. The population density was 570.2 per square mile. There were 7,179 housing units at an average density of 213.5 per square mile.
