On June 24, 1873, the Board of Supervisors in Midland County granted the request of the petitioners and erected the Township of Edenville. The post office was established in 1869 and later was changed to the name of Edenville instead of 16 as the post office department needed a name and would no longer go by a number. They say when Mr. Church was asked to rename the post office; he looked out over the river and up the banks and thought it looked to him like the Garden of Eden (hence Edenville).Then came a man called Wixom. In the 1920ís, he built the Edenville dam, the spillway on the Tobacco River above Edenville (which is now called Wixom Lake) and to the south as the Tittabawassee flows, Sanford Lake in Jerome Township.
