Benzonia Township is located in the central/western are of Benzie County. It�s main communities are Benzonia and Beulah, situated on beautiful Crystal Lake. Historically, this area was settled first in the 1850�s, and was the proposed site of a Christian College founded by the Rev. Charles E. Bailey. The first community was situated on what was then called Herring Creek, until the French named it: "Aux Bec Scies," referring to a species of sawbill duck abundant in the area at that time. Shortly afterwards, sailors nicknamed the river: "Betsie." In 1869, the name was refined to "Benzie" and became the county name when it organized that year. Today, the township has developed into a beautiful resort area.
