Our Rich History
Originally established as a flour mill by John Miller in 1827 in what was then known as the “northernmost village of Plymouth Township,” (later to become Northville), history buffs may be interested to learn that records on file with Oakland County validate Northville Lumber’s claim to fame as the oldest business in Michigan.
In addition to our acclaimed longevity, Northville Lumber has been owned by the same family since the 1860s – now operated by and employing the sixth generation of the Yerkes family.
