Maple Grove Township
Manistee County MI

Maple Grove is bounded on the north by Springdale, east by Manila, south by Brown, and west by Bear Lake. It is a comparatively a new township, having been organized four years ago.

The town embraces thirty-six square miles, and heavily timbered with hard wood. The soil is clay and black loam. Bear Creek and its tributaries traverse the town, thus giving excellent facilities for putting in logs during the Winter.

The present supervisor is P. H. Gaffney.
