Welcome to Colfax Township

Colfax Township is located in the center of Huron County. It was organized in 1868, and its first Supervisor was Metzar Granger.  The township was named after Schuyler Colfax, the running mate of Ulysses S. Grant, who served in office from 1869-1873. He was born March 23, 1823 in New York City.

First settlers found an abundance of virgin forests full of wild game, which was great for hunters and trappers.  Fires in 1871 and again in 1881 destroyed most of the lumber in the county including the county seat, Bad Axe. Today the area is mostly rich farmland created by the earlier fires.

We welcome you to explore today’s Colfax Township that has commercial shopping districts, a hospital, government services, schools, a wind farm, wineries and, of course, its large farming operations and small hobby farms. A small, trusting community with hard working neighbors, it is a great place to call home.
