Northville Downtown Development Authority
Northville is a town rich in history. Established in the early 1800s Northville came of age during the Victorian period and the community retains the timeless flavor of that period today. Located 30 miles northwest of Detroit between Wayne and Oakland Counties, Northville has everything that embodies true downtown living – shopping, dining, and entertainment. While historic homes, architecture and town favorites such as the Marquis Theatre, Mill Race Historical Village, Genitti’s Hole in the Wall and Edwards Café & Caterer echo nostalgia, new developments and attractions add a twist to downtown Northville making it even more attractive to residents and visitors. In 2007 the much-anticipated Town Square was unveiled further enhancing the town’s charming landscape as it provides a state-of-the-art outdoor gathering place for the community and visitors. Another new downtown addition, the Northville Square complex has quickly become one of the hippest places to shop, dine and work. The community’s commitment to the arts continues and with year-round events, there’s always something for everyone in Northville. Popular annual favorites such as Victorian Festival, Farmers’ Market and Art in the Sun coupled with the Fire & Ice festival, monthly First Friday Art Walk, Movies at the Marquis Series, Tunes on Tuesdays Kids Concerts and the Friday Night Summer Concert Series have created a successful and welcome niche for the town.
