Township History

The first settler arrived in 1806. Joel Baker, wife and child, spending their first night in a hollow tree.

By 1812, the settlement of Shalersville grew to the size that merited a separate township. The township was organized April 6, 1812. The number of votes cast was sixteen.

In 1814 there were then 16 families living in log houses. Most of these cabins were built sixteen feet by 20 feet. Stephen Mason added a grist mill. A small island marks the exact location of Mason's mill on Price Road.
