Freedom Township was formed on March 7, 1834 by the Legislative Council of the Territory of Michigan, splitting off Town 3S, Range 4E from then Dexter Township. The first township meeting was held April 7, 1834 at the home of Henry M. Griffin, who became the first township supervisor. The name for the township evolved after considerable dispute, whereupon someone expressed that a good deal of freedom should be exercised in such matters, and that name was then proposed and adopted.
