Hersey township is located on Osceola Countyís southwestern border. It contains the Village of Hersey as well as part of the Pere Marquette Trail, part of Michiganís Rails to Trails Park System.

The Muskegon and Hersey Rivers also meet here, at Herseyís Canoe Landing Park, which makes it a great place to spot your car to end your canoe trip on the Muskegon. (A canoe trip from Evart to Hersey takes about 4 to 5 hours.)

This township also contains a recently developed potash mine, still under expansion, and sits on top of what is estimated to be the richest potash vein in the world.

This area was first settled by fur trapper Nathan Hersey, who was also the first settler in the Osceola County area. Later, this area was harvested for lumber by D.A. Blodgett, one of Michiganís largest lumber barons during the late 1800ís and founder of one of the major hospitals in Grand Rapids.
