History

The present boundaries of Adrian township correspond to survey township 6 South Range 3 East. Lenawee County was initially divided into three townships by act of the Michigan Territorial Legislature on April 12, 1827. Tecumseh Township spanned the northern portion of the county, Logan Township spanned the middle tier and Blissfield Township spanned the southern tier (and also included an area in the "Toledo Strip" which ultimately became part of Ohio). Over time, new townships were created and the area of Logan Township was reduced. By an act of the Territorial Legislature on March 7, 1834, Logan Township was reduced to consist of T6S R3E and was renamed as "Adrian Township", to match that of Adrian, the main village in the township. The village of Adrian was platted under the name "Logan" in 1828 by Addison J. Comstock, but was soon renamed "Adrian" after the Roman Emperor Hadrian at the request of Comstock's wife.[3][4][5]
