Jefferson Township
Jefferson Town Hall [Click here to view full size picture] In Memory [Click here to view full size picture]
Jefferson Township is situated within minutes of the city of Hillsdale and has many unique qualities. A quiet rural setting dotted with lakes, streams, rolling farmland and beautiful Lost Nations forest help us to appreciate the importance of protecting and preserving our land - our heritage.

We have a deep sense of respect for those we have lost within our community and our past tragedy will long be remembered by family and friends.

With current population at approximately 3,141; we offer such community services as: rural fire department, sewer system and transfer station. In order to protect the environment our transfer station is continually implementing new recycling features.

The town hall is always available to township residents and is a feature of our community we can all be proud of. Contact the clerk for hall rental information. It has a new coat of paint, new chairs, appliances and a little spit polish; perfect for those special occasions.

Come visit us at a town meeting or planning commission meeting and be an active part of the community or just drop in and say “hi” sometime.

Our township newsletter is available in key locations in the community and you can always catch up on the latest events with a cup of coffee at the nearest local restaurant.

We are a proud and friendly community serving Hillsdale County in a special way.
