Novi, Michigan

Novi, Michigan

Novi is located in south-central Oakland County. It was first settled in 1825 by an Erastus Ingersoll, from Ontario, New York. Around that time, the name Novi was suggested by the wife of a Dr. J. C. Emery, possibly from a combination of ideas, one being that it was the 6th terminal stop, (i.e., No. VI) on the plank road from Detroit. The name is also Latin for "new," suggesting that here was a place one could start over and obtain a new lease on life. First referred to as Novi Corners, it acquired a post office in 1833. It later incorporated as village in 1958.



Today, Novi is a well-developed suburb and on the go with the development of a "new" downtown area at Novi Rd. and Grand River, which includes several uniquely styled shopping malls. It is easily accessed off of I-96.
