New Lodi Township Historical Group Forming

lodilodi

A new group is working to preserve the history of Lodi Township. An offshoot of the Saline Area Historical Society, the group has two current projects: Preserving the Old Lodi Township Hall and cleaning up the Lodi Township Cemetery. The old hall, located on Pleasant Lake Road, dates back to 1867 and has been closed for 30 years, according to the spring/summer Lodi Connection newsletter. The cemetery, located at Textile and Ann Arbor-Saline roads, dates back to the late 1820s. A spring clean-up of the cemetery is planned for Saturday May 19 with a rain date of Sunday May 20. Anyone interested in helping with this clean-up should meet at the cemetery at 9 a.m. May 19 with rakes and yard clippers. For more information call Margaret O’Connor, 663-1327, or Peg Canham, 944-2922.
