Macomb Township is a general law township and northern suburb of Detroit located in Macomb County in Michigan. It is in the Metropolitan Detroit region. The township’s population was 50,477 at the 2000 census. The 2010 Census places the township’s population at 79,580. That makes it Michigan’s fastest growing major municipality.
The early founders of Macomb Township arrived in the early 19th century. They were in search of flat and fertile farmland, like that near the Clinton River. Many of these early settlers were of German descent. The German influences still remain today. The Township of Macomb was officially approved by the Legislative Council on March 7, 1834. Macomb Township was also a large part of the lumber and logging industry of Southeast Michigan in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Logs would be transported south from Wolcott Mill in Ray Township. Then down the Middle Branch Clinton River to sawmills. This route became known as Romeo Plank. It is the name of the modern-day road that runs down the same route.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 36.3 square miles. Out of that, 36.3 square miles is land and 0.04 square miles (0.06%) is water. The area is predominantly a mix of flat fertile land and swampy wetland. However, with beginning with the housing boom in the late 1990s, the area has been largely suburbanizing.
The township was named in honor of General Alexander Macomb. He was was a highly decorated veteran of the War of 1812. His successful mercantile family owned most of Macomb County at one time.
