Mayfield Township, Michigan
Mayfield Township was first
organized in 1843 when John B. Evans,
John Ryan and Martin Stiles gave notice
to the township's inhabitants that a town
meeting would be held on April 17th at the
school near Stiles' home.
In the years following, the lumber industry grew and by 1874, there
were ten saw mills operating in Mayfield Township. The success of
the lumber industry resulted in three thriving villages within the
township: Fish Lake, Five Lakes and Millville.
Mayfield Township has also been home to two of the most successful
manufacturing businesses in Lapeer County's history. In 1962,
Vesely's Apache camping trailer was named Michigan's Consumer
Product of the Year. At one time, the plant was the world's largest
camping trailer factory, producing up to 2,000 per month. The plant is
now home to Durakon Industries, which manufactures pickup truck
