On January 29, 2020 Northville's Mayor, Brian Turnbull, gave a lecture on Northville's History and Historic Neighborhoods to a full house in the New School Church. Once again, Mayor Turnbull packed the New School Church! He spoke about Northville's Historic neighborhoods and how they got their names. From the Historic District to Orchard Heights, the neighborhood west of Rogers Street and south of Main to 7 Mile, where an orchard once stood, to Bealtown, the neighborhood behind the racetrack and finally to Cabbagetown, the neighborhood south of 8 mile and east of Center Street. Brian brings history to life with his family stories about the people and places that made Northville what it is today.
