Some early white visitors to the area came to trap and trade with the Indians, perhaps as early as 1810-1820. Father Baraga mapped the area between 1830-1840. After the 1850 Government Survey, the area received its first permanent white settlers. Amon Langworthy, George Brown and William H. Fife (who later became the Township’s first supervisor) came in 1854, Joseph Sours in 1855, H. S. Beach in 1856, and J. M. Merrill in 1858. At “Hi” Pray Park, a stone memorializes the Williamsburg pioneers of 1856. These pioneers are William and Martha Langworthy, Edward and Millie Cox, Michael and Lizzie Gay, and C. Truman and Laura Scofield.

In the spring of 1859, lands in township 28, 29 and 30, which used to be a part of the Indian Reserve, were declared part of the public domain and became subject to settlement and pre-emption.
